    Hi, new here and new to wanting to freelance. Been thinking about it for time, usual story. Knee deep in the shit that is the rat race and my talents and interests lie elsewhere.

    Basically I'm looking to set myself up as a video post production and graphic design business primarily, but to go off into related areas as required. Including photography, podcasting, videography, web compression for video, etc....

    Anyways. What I am planning first if to go semi-freelance, get a job a lot closer to home (currently my commute is 4hours standard a day, which is having a big effect on my health, anyways I digress) to cover most of my standard monthly outgoings, rent, heat etc... and gradually as I focus on the freelancing leave behind that work.

    So, phew, yes I has a question. My question is:

    Any books/publication recommendations relating to my business intentions? Or very good and must have general things?


    The "Financial Times" Guide to Business Start Up 2009: The Only Annually Updated Guide for Entrepeneurs (Financial Times Series): Sara Williams: Amazon.co.uk: Books seems to be close to what I'm looking for, but I reckon this will be quite general and more in the realm of traditional business, like sales and that.

    There is also this one
    The Small Business Start-up Workbook: A Step-by-step Guide to Starting the Business You've Dreamed of: Cheryl D. Rickman, Dame Anita Roddick: Amazon.co.uk: Books

    Which again would be quite general I think. :D

    Has anyone got any recommendations to look at? I want to make sure I'm doing things properly. :D

    Sorry if this has already been asked and that, not having much luck with the search. :D
