I finally finished The $100 Startup.

This week’s newsletter is brought to you by me. I built Freelance Funnel, a service that takes the headaches out of finding new leads. If you’re a new freelancer, or don’t have a big enough referral network to keep your pipeline full, you’ll definitely want to check it out. There’s even a 30 day free trial, so there’s nothing to lose.
