Ed Gandia

Nominated for the 2012 Small Business Influencer Awards in:

Ed Gandia is a founding partner of International Freelancers Academy and co-author of the bestselling and award-winning book, The Wealthy Freelancer (Penguin/Alpha). He is also a co-founder of International Freelancers Day, the world’s biggest online educational conference for solo professionals.

An expert on the topic of successfully transitioning from employee to self-employed, Ed took his part-time freelance business from zero to a six-figure income in only 27 months. And he made the transition to self-employment without sacrificing his income or putting his young family’s financial future at risk.


Today Ed is a successful freelance copywriter, speaker and trainer.

He founded International Freelancers Academy because much of the freelancing advice he was coming across was misguided and based on limiting beliefs. He knew there was a better way to run and grow a solo business. And he wanted to show both new and seasoned self-employed service professionals how to earn more in less time. That way they can create the freedom, flexibility and lifestyle that enables them to live more fully.
