"I was a bit hesitant at first to buy Diana's ebook because there are so many others that sound like they make the same promise. But I was not disappointed! This is much more than a simple ebook. It is a full-scale "how to" program that could easily sell for $97 or $197 and still be a good buy. At ebook prices this is a no-brainer.
"Diana spells out everything for us in this manual, including exactly how to handle the imagined stress of using the telephone to generate business much more quickly than the more popular guidance of the day on using information marketing to pre-sell prospects on your services.
"The guidance in this book is especially valuable at this moment in time if you are among the 10% of the population that is out of work. Unlike all the good books on how to land a job today, which in the end you have very little direct control over, Diana's approach to landing work - vs that elusive job - does give you a proven system to take back control of your life.
"So I highly recommend this product to anyone who has ever toyed with the idea of self employment. Heck... I also recommend it to anyone who has ever worked in a business or office in case they may recognize an opportunity that they had never considered. Call it an early birthday present to yourself!
"In closing, I'd like to suggest to Diana that she start thinking about what comes next. Because I suspect that after getting to know Diana and benefiting greatly from her advice and systems in this ebook, that there will be lots of people who are going to want more..."

Let's look at each of these three steps more closely.
Because you are already the expert! Your credentials, networking and work samples put you ahead of the pack.
Corporate executives want you because you will nail their assignments on your own. It's kind of funny (sadly), but it's easier to get a freelance or consulting assignment than a full-time job even though doing the work is more challenging when you have no on-site boss or coworkers to advise you.
But shouldn't I find my dream job?
"Experts" tell you to take time to discover what your heart desires. Get in touch with your passion. Chill out until inspiration strikes.
Now I'm not opposed to living your dream. In fact, if you know what it is, my advice may have you joyfully earning money long before soul searching, journaling and walks along the seashore reveal how to bring in the bucks.
I'm just saying, start by looking at your proven skills if you want to earn substantial money quickly. You may rediscover your love for your work once you are out of cubicle hell.
Where should I look for assignments?
I teach you exactly how to get work from companies, preferably those with substantial budgets. Why successful companies instead of individuals who may hire you?
Let Willie Sutton, legendary bank robber, give the answer he gave when asked why he robs banks: Because that's where the money is.
Here's a second good reason that even Willie overlooked: because it's easy to find the banks.
Here are some of the many jobs that can be done by a solopro. Which one resembles your last good job?

is that she is no-nonsense. She
KNOWS that what she has to offer works. She is compassionate and
absolutely wants the best for everyone she works with. She knows the
ins and outs of trying to get a job and how desperate folks are to get
out of the horrible job market and achieve to their highest callings.
If you want to learn not only the steps of how to freelance but also
have someone who will see you through, then Diana and her ebook are
your ticket. She means business!"
Kat Miller, Mill Valley, CA
Think a bit about the kinds of companies most likely to want your services. Now think about the job titles of people most likely to have the clout to hire you. (My book tells you how to find the names of these individuals.)
Once you know who can hire you, how do you contact them?
OK, I'm counting on you to stay with me here for a moment so you don't miss out on the most effective way to get assignments.
Phone the right people.
Yes, you read that right. It's what people commonly call "cold calling."
I prefer to call it "telephoning," but Google calls the shots -- you may not have found this page without typing in "cold calling."
Some people proudly state they would never stoop that low. So instead they network with everyone they see, asking almost-strangers for connections to job leads. They befriend people on Facebook and LinkedIn they have never met. They waste hours surfing the Internet without connecting with the right people.
What they don't realize is that phoning is an honest, effective way to offer your services to those who need them . . . and have the budget to pay you.
Phoning is easy because you start with a script. You know exactly what you will say. (And if you don't know yet, I'll provide you with the exact words to say. It's as if I'm whispering in your ear.)
Here's a little-known secret: Most of the gurus who preach that they have an "easier" way did phoning themselves. In fact, if you read much at all about the pros, you'll find that almost all of them started with telephoning. . . because it works!
If you have argued with your insurance company . . . asked someone on a date . . . or called in sick to work, you have already succeeded at more challenging phone tasks than what I'm describing.
So why not give it a try?
Depending on your phone plan, each call is cheap to free. (And if it isn't cheap now, just wait till you read Special Report #4, which tells you how to slash your phone costs.)
You can get started right now, right where you are. Literally. Even at home in your PJs.
|"I just finished
reading Diana’s ebook and all I can say is "amazing."
The ebook is packed with so much useful information that anyone
considering going into business for themselves should read it. Diana
takes your hand and walks you through every step to get started and
maintain a thriving solo business. I don't think she has left a stone
unturned in providing you with every detail needed. It is obvious she
really knows her stuff and is very generous in sharing all her
Elaine Lockard, Norfolk, VA
As I said, it's going to take many calls. Perhaps many, many calls. But while individual results vary, this system may well give you paying work in only four weeks.
And even if you don't work the program at maximum intensity, this system is much more likely to pay off than scattered efforts, or worse yet, doing nothing at all.
Becoming a solopro may be OK, but I want a "regular job" you may say.
I hear you.
Freelance and consulting does not close the door on the job you want. In fact, it throws open the door to new opportunities.
You certainly do have the time to solopro while you look for a real job. Here's the secret about how to look for both types of work at the same time:
Stop all the job-hunt activity that isn't getting you anywhere.
Come on, we both know you look at online job boards even though they're a waste of time. And you send off resumes for jobs you don't want or can't do.
(I did it too though I also knew better. Couldn't help it. I felt so guilty about not having a job.)
So admit what isn't working and stop doing it.
And turn off the TV and Facebook games.
Is this system for you?
(By the way, if you don't know exactly how to translate your tech and admin skills into a specific business, there's a solopro job that fits you perfectly. Become a virtual assistant. It's the real deal in this digital age. You can work for a wide range of companies and earn substantial fees. Don't miss Special Report #3.)
Take the concept of telephoning. There's not a lot of advice out there on how to do it . . . while everyone and his brother wants to get you started on Facebook and Twitter.
That's because phoning sounds hard and online socializing (such as FB and T) looks easy.
But looks are deceiving. Playing around on FB and T is easy, but actually transforming hours of play into paying work is rare.
And since "social networking" is all about relationship building, let me ask you: How many profitable relationships do you expect to establish in your first month?
Just wait till you see Special Report #2. It spells out why 17 popular marketing steps can be scratched off your first to-do list. And it will help you stand up to the well meaning but untested advice of family and friends.
Phoning truly is easy once you get your feet wet.
It doesn't matter if you're an introvert (like me) or an extrovert. You'll know exactly what to say. No awkward pauses that make live networking events so scary. When the phone conversation is done, you simply say thank you, good bye and hang up.
If you are sick of the job hunt and even tempted to give up, freelance and consulting opportunities won't just bring in cash. They'll repair your very soul.
This system isn't for everyone, but frankly, those people haven't read this far. They want to get rich quick. They want to rake in gobs of cash while they sleep. And I'd guess they aren't too smart either.
I promise you: telephoning is easy once you know how to do it. But let's look together at alternatives that at first glance may seem more pleasant.
"I wish this book was around when I quit my job and started my first consulting practice! The information that Diana provides and the system she teaches (and uses herself) would have saved me lots of time and wasted effort. And I'm sure I would have had money coming in much sooner.
"You'd think I'd have it all figured out as I'm well into my third freelance/consulting practice, but reading her book gave me great ideas to boost my current business too.
"Whether you're just starting out or your business has room for improvement, this book is full of helpful, practical and insightful information. It's a great blueprint to get started fast."

...and you can download the entire 123-page manual plus four invaluable Special Reports RIGHT NOW as a convenient, online-only PDF.
I've written this manual to save you from years of learning the hard way SO YOU CAN START making money quickly as a FREELANCER or CONSULTANT.
Let me show you:
Start Freelancing and Consulting, my ebook, is one of a kind because it is the only resource I know of that tells you how to become a freelancer or consultant for companies and how to do it fast. It teaches you exactly how to get your first clients. After all, you have to walk before you can fly.
This book is one of a kind because it shows you how to market your unique talents. When you build on your own experience, it's clear why you deserve substantial pay right from the beginning.
This book is one of a kind because it doesn't require you to develop a "relationship" with corporate clients before you offer your services.
If you've done some reading about online marketing, you may have seen something about Know-Like-Trust.
If not, here's the idea: "They" (the experts) say that people will only work with you if they know, like and trust you. In other words, they only work with people they have a relationship with.
Uh... that sounds like it will take time. Lots of time. How many relationships of trust do you expect to develop and then convert to cash in 30 days? Think you can manage even one?
But there's a much bigger problem here. Business clients don't care that you enjoy tango, sunsets or bread baking. They don't care if you have a kitty cat or a puppy dog or a talking parakeet. That's Facebook and Twitter chitchat. It's totally out of touch with your marketplace in the corporate world.
People who spend corporate money want to know that you can do the work without their hand-holding. They're tied up in putting out fires and attending meetings. They must trust you to do the job right with minimal involvement on their part. Know and like can come later . . . if ever.
This book is one-of-a-kind because it tells you exactly what to do and what to say. This book is about action, not about the law of attraction or positive thinking.
Now don't get me wrong. Having the right attitude sure helps. However, you still need to take action, right? As God told the guy praying to win the lottery, "Come on, buy a ticket already."
This book is your ticket.
This book is one-of-a-kind because it is direct, down to earth and even funny. That's intentional. Sharing in the sass supports us in doing the marketing that has to be done.
"I like Diana’s common sense, no miracles approach. This kind of down-to-earth advice and perspective, spiced with Diana’s incorrigible humor, was exactly what I needed (and still need) when starting my own business. I especially appreciate her comments about marketing. It’s a task many freelancers know little or think nothing about before striking off on their own. Yet it’s critical to success. This guide is the proverbial hand-holding I never had, but wanted and needed."
Michele Jiménez, Kvicksund, Sweden
This book is one-of-a-kind because it answers the questions that gnaw at you and it answers so many questions you haven't even thought of yet.
I think you'll agree that this page has been gosh darn informative. But this 123-page ebook answers so many more questions that haunt you . . . or will that will keep you awake next week.
Here are down-to-earth answers: exactly what I'd tell you over coffee.
These four Special Reports help you get a fast start to make real money as a solopro freelancer or consultant.
I'm so excited about this Special Report--it's my favorite part of the whole thing! If I knew then what I know now, my business would have had a much smoother start.
In this Special Report I list 15 action steps and show you exactly how to put them in place. I strip each of these steps down to the basics, complete with templates and examples as needed.
Once you do these simple things you'll be further ahead than many people who have been in business for years but still don't have all the fundamentals in place.
Here is the only place I reveal these 15 steps. Each of these steps can be overwhelming if you want to get them right. I assure you, with this information, you can check off each one in minutes.
Ooooh oooh wait, I was wrong. The 15 steps to get started are invaluable, but the 17 don't do's are even better.
As soon as you tell your family and friends that you freelance or consult, they will start listing off marketing projects you should do. And the more "help" they offer, the more overwhelmed and inadequate you'll feel.
Listen, marketing ideas are a dime a dozen. You need this list to take unnecessary activity off the table. Liberate yourself from the weighting down of "free" advice. Put down the weary load they try to place on your back.
I assure you: you can market your services effectively and still have time for a life.
This list is top-secret. But I'll give you a taste right here. Number 1: You don't need to write out a business plan. I'll tell you why a lot of the so-called experts are wrong about this.
Kathy Goughenour, VA coach extraordinaire, wrote this report especially for you.
If you have professional, technical, administrative or secretarial skills that have made your company's office run smoothly--regardless of what your actual work title was -- this report is a real winner.
I haven't seen anything else like it. It will add a solid framework to help you figure out exactly what you do that people will pay you for.
And by the way, depending on your specialty, the market demand and the money can be terrific!
My executive vice president of IT (and hubby), Wayne Schneidman, wrote this report because he saw a crying need for it when he read my ebook.
Wayne has made long distance costs a non-issue for us and he knows how you too can minimize or even eliminate monthly phone bills. Once you have these cost-saving plans in place, you can phone prospects and clients around the world without monitoring the time.
Phoning for work is a really cheap way to get assignments . . . if you have the right phone plans in place.
So throw out that egg timer!
There's no question that this book can save you months of time in attracting paying clients. Not only does this mean money will flow in sooner, but it also means you're less likely to get discouraged and give up.
If I used this argument to price by value, this manual and 4 Special Reports would rightly cost in the thousands of dollars.
But instead, I priced this book really low, way below what you'll earn on your first assignment and quite possibly priced lower than what you'll earn in your very first hour.
Friends suggest that I price it high to match the competition.
But wait! There is no real competition. I don't know of any other book that teaches what this ebook teaches: how to start getting assignments quickly and how to launch your new career in your own professional field.
Considering how quickly this manual will help you bring in
green, it is easily worth a reasonable $97.
Then I priced it at $47 for awhile.
However, I want to help you make your right decision with confidence. So I am charging only $24.95 at this time.
Remember, I've lived this book and I know my techniques can work.
You'll learn EXACTLY HOW to get the assignments you want and enjoy self-employment. You'll have a precise action plan in place to transform your life.
I want you to experience the satisfaction you will feel when you take control of your life and the money begins to flow in.
Plus, you have my iron-clad 100% Money Back Guarantee for 30 days.
