Practical books about making the leap to Self-employment?
August 19, 2014 8:46 AM Subscribe
Looking for some book recommendations for someone who wants to move from 9-5 to self-employed in an artistic field (specifically writing, but the book needn't be so specific--just not about say, starting a manufacturing business).
But only looking for PRACTICAL books. I keep picking up things that look practical that end up either being more "inspirational" or that are trying to cover too broad a base, from people who want to open a bake shop to people who want to do web comics.

More specifically, I'd like something that addresses the questions you need to ask yourself to know when you're getting ready to make the change. For example: is it realistic to think about becoming self-employed while still having student debt? How do you budget for health care? What are some creative ways to supplement your income, if your primary stream in unstable> What are some of the biggest financial, social, psychological challenges first-time entrepreneurs face and how can one prepare?
