In freelancing, quoting rates to relative strangers and committing to a self-assessed value is all in a day’s work. The money part can be intimidating. Quoting and setting your freelance rates is a delicate, balancing act that most people don't talk about.

Even when you’ve been at this for a hot minute, it still takes a certain amount of moxie to not only know your worth, but quote it to someone on the other side of a screen.

   Freelancing is an attractive option. When you freelance, you do what you want, when you want - within certain limitations, of course. 

Let’s be real, as with all things in life, the #freelancelife  is not as glamorous and glitzy up close as it is on Instagram, but for the RIGHT kind of human -it’s even better. 

If you’re here, chances are you’re ready to sub the suit and stilettos for something more  -comfortable, but first, you n...

No matter where you look, some business somewhere is proudly displaying its Values, sharing how thoughtful and transparent they are. 

Aren’t those qualities that we should innately have as businesses? So, why is that kind of braggadocio strutting across websites and social media accounts?

Sure, walk-ins are great -and you should take that sale to the bank, but if THAT'S your average may be in some deep dodo. At the end of the day, nobody wants to be sold to. I think we’ve all had enough of the marketing gimmicks and pop-ups. Want to know what Brands do that most of us, day-to-day businesses, don’t do?

They connect with their target audiences by sharing an experience. Think about it...Dove doesn...

Brand Voice is the single most important part of your Brand -and yet all too often, it takes a back seat to the visuals. Most people toss around their voice without a second thought, not realizing that they’re flinging around some seriously valuable real estate.
