The Golden Rule of Freelancing

We teach our clients how we want them to treat us.

If you’re struggling with clients who don’t respect your work or your value to them, the reason could be that you’re not educating them in how you want them to relate to you. Overcome assumptions on their part and create an easier relationship by positioning yourself as a valuable creative partner in their success. Using the Golden Rule— which goes something like: Treat others the way you want them to treat you, I present an approach that includes understanding your value, establishing the values you want to work by, and positioning through pricing and service.
