Freelancing 101: Find Your Perfect Billable Rate
Limited Capacity seats available

Whether you are getting started in freelancing, thinking about it or been at this for years ... I promise you will not want to miss this session! With almost 30 years of running freelance businesses, I've found the process of creating the best billable rate for my services. Better yet, I've figured out to teach you too!

We will spend the first part of the session working through an exercise that will identify your "Why?" Through the steps, you will see how this answer is what drives everything else you do.

The rest of our time together will be spent working, hands-on, through your personal process of finding your billable rate(s). Instead of guessing what to charge, let the numbers tell you.
