"Ready to be your own boss? Whether you dream of launching your own graphic design startup or growing your Etsy store into a full-scale operation in your spare time, Business for Bohemians will equip you with the tools to turn your talents into a profitable and enjoyable business. But if cash flow forecasts, tax returns, and P&Ls sound horrifying, fear not: help is at hand. Tom Hodgkinson has spent his career advocating for laid-back living, and in Business for Bohemians, he combines practical advice with hilarious anecdotes to create a refreshingly candid guidebook for all of us who aspire to a greater degree of freedom in our working lives. Accounting need no longer be a dark art. You will become a social media maven and a friend of the spreadsheet. You will learn the art of negotiation, how to get paid, and how to hire staff. You will discover that laziness can be a virtue. Above all, you will realize that freedom from the nine-to-five life is achievable--and, with Hodgkinson's comforting, pragmatic and extremely funny advice at hand, you might even enjoy yourself along the way."--Dust jacket.
