{Webinar Replay} I’m not making money: now what?

We are thrilled to have Corinne McKay back on our platform in a special “part 2” to the webinar she gave last year about leveraging data to set the right rates for you.

Don’t know Corinne?
She’s not only been president of the ATA, she’s run one of the longest-run courses for freelancers — scroll down for her bio!

In part I of this webinar, we learned how to calculate how much you need or want to earn as a freelancer in order to reach your financial goals, and how to break that down into an hourly or per-word rate.

But what if that rate is double, triple, or quadruple what you’re earning now? Don’t despair, there are strategies that you can use for this too.

In this webinar you’ll learn:
✅ How to differentiate between situations where you can’t earn more and where you choose not to earn more
✅ How to evaluate your options if you’re stuck at a non-thrilling income level right now
✅ A very basic technique for marketing to direct clients that anyone can implement right away
