Calling All Freelancers!

How much are you worth, really? Do you know? Do care? You should!

Are you just starting out in your freelancing career? Are you thinking about making the leap, but you don’t know how much you should charge your clients to make up for your current day job? Well, now there’s a site that can help you with figuring it all out: http://freelanceswitch.com/rates/.

I didn’t actually know about this site when I started my freelancing business, so I just had to come up with a figure that I thought was what I needed to charge in order to make the same amount of money I was making in my last regular day job. When I found this site, I plugged in all my numbers (even overestimating sometimes), and I came out with a figure that was just about what I had figured out on my own, but it took much less time and much less guesswork.

Try it out for yourself, and see what you come up with. It only takes between five and twenty minutes, and the little effort you will expend to fill in the blanks will be so worth it! If you’re in business for yourself, you need to know how to make a profit (or at least how to break even), and this is one quick tool that will help you figure it all out. You don’t want to pass it up!
