How to stop working for free

There are many ways you may be working for free. Some are by choice, others are not so obvious. In this episode we explore ways you could be devaluing your service and missing out on opportunities to charge for your expertise.

We will look at:

  • Pitching
  • Consulting
  • Doing extra freebies
  • Trying to create work

I share my own experiences of working for free and how we can flip the script and start charging for what we do.


The Project Discovery Blueprint will help you establish a discovery process for projects that will allow you to get paid for your consultancy, understand what the client needs, quote the right price and deliver the right solution. You can find out more information by clicking here.
