Power BI Desktop for independent contractor

My client wants me to explore using Power BI for reporting out of their SQL Server system on Azure.  However, as I'm independent I have a personal hotmail account and not a business or education account. Every time I've tried to sign up for a trial of Power BI it rejects me for want of a business or educational email.

Is there any way for me to download, install, and test Power BI Desktop in this situation?

Would you be interested in picking up another independent contractor job?  We had someone help us get a PowerBI solution started but then he left before it was completed.  We could use some help getting it going. Thanks!
