Get to know your ideal client really well and figure out what
it is about you that’s going to make you awesome to them.
Robin Cangie is helping entrepreneurs feel less confused about marketing and land more of the clients they want (without feeling sleazy!). Earlier Robin Cangie was a marketing executive in the San Francisco tech scene. She had a great job at a company she loved and helped build from the ground up. But she also dreamed of being her own boss. Transitioning to self-employment did not go smoothly. In fact, it was one of the hardest, loneliest decisions she ever made. She felt overwhelmed by conflicting advice and unrealistic promises from freelance thought leaders, and she struggled to market herself and grow her business in a way that felt true to her values. Four years in, Robin has built a thriving business, but she’ll never forget the stress and loneliness of those early days. That’s why she founded The Empowered Freelancer. Now, she spends her time helping fellow entrepreneurs feel less confused and make better decisions about marketing. She teaches them how to market themselves in a way that’s compelling, authentic and totally non-sleazy.

Rick Green, MBA, is a former IRS agent, accounting professor, and auditor in the private sector. He offers practical advice for the individual taxpayer to stand up to the IRS, whether the citizen is filling their annual return or enduring an audit. Rick explains how to file returns that make it easy for the confused IRS to understand, and how to limit the impact and cost of an audit. Finally, Rick uses government documents proving the IRS’ disorganization and increasing ineffectiveness — which the IRS largely ignores. Such IRS chaos and dysfunction demand that it be abolished and replaced by a national sales tax or VAT.
