The first few years of freelancing left me basically starving. I had no mentor, nobody to answer my questions, no helpful resources or templates to use in my own business, and brand-new challenges every other day (or so it felt). I didn’t know how to come up with my pricing, or how to find the right clients who would pay me what I’m worth.
Projects kept blowing out, clients kept being difficult, and I was overworked, overly emotional and underpaid. It felt like I was just guessing what to do, instead of actually knowing.
