About this workshop

In this class, I'll not only cover the tactics and mindsets that have proved the most helpful in my freelance career, but I'll get transparent with money (this rarely happens in industry) and talk about mistakes I've made along the way (like the client who paid me in cash he kept in a rental storage unit).

Takeaways

  • How to think about rates and billing so that you can make a living doing what you love
  • How to create a fantastic portfolio that sells (and what NOT to put on there)
  • How to get useful design feedback, and why so many designers complain about "bad clients" when it's really their own fault
  • The most important advice I've received in 3.5 years of Seattle-based design freelancing
