Freelancing shouldn’t be free. In fact, it shouldn’t be anywhere near free. We know how difficult it can be to get paid well, find bigger clients, and manage everything yourself. We know because we’ve been there and made it through the other side. This page is full of resources that we wish we had then.

Freelance Practice Health Check


It’s so common to be swept up in the day to day hustle that you lose sight of the big picture issues that may be getting in the way of your freelance success. That’s why we created this helpful questionnaire: By answering a few key questions, you can begin to understand what areas to celebrate, and which ones need attention.

Accessing the questionnaire is easy and free. Simply enter your name and email below and you’ll be automatically redirected to the downloadable PDF. We’ll also email you a copy, just in case.


We’ve selected a few highlights that you need to see, kicking off with a four-part series that gets down and dirty on the subject of money.

Our YouTube channel is bursting at the seams with hard-to-tackle subjects like finding bigger clients, getting paid more for your projects, getting paid on time, and hiring your first employee. It’s all out there for you, free!

Looking to give back? One of the most important things you can do for us is simply subscribe to our channel, which you can do here:

Why You’re Unwilling to Charge What You’re Worth

Are you charging $50, $100, or even $500 for a logo? If you are, you can charge more. But will you? The difference between charging a price that seems “safe” and “comfortable” versus requiring your clients to pay your full value is confidence. What school you went to, where you live, your previous experience: none of that really matters. What matters is having the confidence to place a high value on what you do. Do you have that confidence? If you’re here, and if you’re like many other designers, you probably don’t. And I’ve thought about that a lot –…
