Hey there fellow freelancer and food-obsessed creative, it’s so nice to meat you!
After nearly 15 years in the creative industry, working in everything from real estate marketing to retirement living advertising, luxury global brands to the grocer down the road, I think I can safely say I have seen A LOT when it comes to businesses that need the genius that only a freelance creative can serve.
As creatives, we know that our work is not just a job, it’s our passion. We pour our hearts and souls into every project we take on, striving to create something unique and beautiful.
But being a creative freelancer comes with its own set of challenges, right?
We have to manage our time, balance multiple projects, handle client demands, and everything else that comes with running a business. It can be a lot to handle, but fear not, because I’m here to help you navigate these challenges and take your creative career to the next level.
First, let’s talk about pricing.
As creative freelancers, we often struggle with pricing our services. It can be difficult to put a dollar value on our work, especially when we’re passionate about what we do. But setting the right price is crucial to make a living and be sustainable in the long term.
That’s why I’ve created a free pricing calculator that takes into account your expenses, taxes, and desired income, helping you set a price that’s fair and reasonable. With this lovingly baked tool, you’ll feel confident that you’re charging what you’re valued at and not underselling yourself.
Next, let’s talk about continuous learning and development.
The creative industry is constantly evolving, and staying on top of the latest strategies and best practices is key to standing out in the market. That’s why I offer a variety of resources here on Creative Business Kitchen, including masterclasses, e-books, and blog posts that cover topics like marketing, branding, and client management. These resources are designed to provide practical advice and actionable tips that you can implement in your business right away.
By investing in your skills and knowledge, you’ll be better equipped to take on any challenge that comes your way, this I know for sure.
