The Fear of Pricing (GWTW42)

As a creative professional and educator, everyone from students to businesses want to know the answer to the same question: how much do you charge? In this episode of Getting Work To Work, I share why I have avoided talking about this topic, some of my fears when it comes to pricing, and six ways to address the fear you may have about pricing your work.

6 Ways to Overcome your Fear of Pricing

  1. Practice confidently saying numbers that scare you.
  2. Take into account your whole person and all of your experiences when determining your price.
  3. Be okay with making up numbers when starting out or when adjusting to new territories.
  4. Adjust your prices project to project; don’t wait to raise your prices.
  5. Regardless of how you price your time or work, ask yourself how you will address questions of long-term financial stability and sustainability. Are you thinking about and planning for retirement, vacation, knowing what you want from life, taxes, and your health?
  6. Obsess over the results you provide for your clients.
