#177: Your Burning Freelancing Questions Answered

On today’s show I share my thoughts and answers to commonly asked questions I hear from freelancers of all levels and in all industries. These are questions that seem to come up time and time again. There is no one right answer, and each question may have different answers depending on the service, the client and so many other variables. 

That said, I hope my answers to the following questions help you and allow you to make a decision that is supportive of you as a freelance business owner. 

In this episode, I address these seven questions:

  1. How do I get steady clients?
  2. Do I need headshots? Do I need a website? (Do I need XYZ for my business?)
  3. How do I figure out a day rate?
  4. I have a client who is so critical of my work! They have tons of edits and comments. This can cause multiple rounds of editing. What do I do? 
  5. My client owes me several thousand dollars. How do I get them to pay me? 
  6. My client included XYZ in their contract. How do I push back? 
  7. How many hours should I be working each week as a full-time freelancer?
