On work, wealth and money mind


When you go freelance, you start selling your skills on the open market.

To prosper, you need commercial skills as well as hands-on work skills.

In other words, you need a ‘money mind’ alongside your ‘work mind’.

When you start out, you’ll need to set your own wealth targets, identify your ideal clients and understand your unique value.

Once you understand the value you offer, you can set prices that reflect it.

You can learn how professionals negotiate, using more than price alone to close deals that work for both sides.

To keep moving towards your wealth goals, you can take every opportunity to increase your prices.

Looking at the bigger picture, you can explore ways to develop your freelancing to make it more like a business.

Cash Money Freelancing covers all these areas and more.
