Why share this? Because I love how Jake Jorgovan leads into this whole idea. Who hasn’t wasted tons of hours and money on getting pricing wrong (especially when starting out)?
I agree whole-heartedly with Jake’s advice.
If you’re smart, you’ll invest 5 minutes to read the whole thing here.
I’ll kick it off…
“I want to share with you a story. The story is of two designers.
Both designers make roughly $6,000 per month.
Both designers have equal skills and capabilities.
Both designers have a similar portfolio and quality of work.
Yet there is one massive difference between these two designers.
One designer is working 60+ hours per week while juggling a ton of clients.
The second designer is working 20-25 hours per week while handling just a few clients.
Both designers are similar, but one works significantly more than the other.
How does this happen?
The difference is in the pricing.
I know this because those two designers are both me. The first designer was me at the start of my freelance career. I was handling my pricing in all the wrong ways and working around the clock on many different clients to make a good living.
The second designer is me 6 months later. I implemented new pricing strategies into my freelancing career and my life changed as a result of it.
I was the same person, with the same skills and quality of work, yet I cut the amount of hours I worked by a third.”
