When pricing your products or services, remember you’re not just being paid for that thing. You’re being paid for your time, your talent, your experience, your energy, your reputation, your investments in your own growth. Don’t undercut yourself. You’re worth so much more.
This took me time to understand and it fully sunk it when I began to realize there’s a difference between doing something for fun in which you’re good at and when someone is willing to pay you for it. There’s a lot more variables to consider especially if you want to take this thing you do even further and remain profitable.
There’s rarely a cookie-cutter answer to how one should things because everyone’s creative pursuit is different but luckily there’s no shortage of resources that may take time to research but we owe it to ourselves to put in the time behind-the-scenes so that we’re being compensated correctly once we’re on stage.
