“How do I justify my ‘above market’ rate to clients?” (My Freelance Life 021)

Figuring out your freelance rate is one of the most challenging things a freelancer faces. Andy is no exception.

The fear of selling himself short and the anxiety caused by setting the bar too high is a fine balancing act that Andy keeps in mind while quoting his clients.

In today’s episode, Andy discusses how he justifies his ‘above market’ rates to clients – so that the subject of money is never awkward or embarrassing.

This and much more in episode 21 of My Freelance Life.
