There’s a reason you always find yourself caving in and not getting the best possible deal for yourself — whether it’s asking for a raise at your old job, negotiating the salary for a new job, or dealing with a client and not being sure what to charge. The reason for your negotiating timidity has to do with emotion, not logic. The very same part of your personality that drew you to work in a creative field also makes you an easy target for compromise when it comes to talking about money. But this is a tendency you can learn to use to advantage, and you’ll get a great start in this free talk.
This talk is for designers, writers, account managers, biz dev people, freelancers, and anyone in creative businesses who need to negotiate their own salaries, as well as the fees, timeline, and scope of a client project.
