Working Without Pants - Creative Entrepreneurship

This marks episode four in this series about my upcoming book The Creative's Guide to Freelancing. For those who haven't been listening already, I am going through my book chapter by chapter and pulling out some of the key concepts and ideas from each chapter.

This episode is specifically about pricing. Now many of you may have listened to my previous episode Unconventional Pricing for Creatives. If you haven't I actually recommend that episode as a precursor to this episode.

In this episode, I dive into some of the concepts from my unconventional pricing episode in even more detail.

And inside my upcoming book there is even more details on pricing, proposals and much more.
