Hear About the Book What to Charge: Pricing Strategies for Freelancers and Consultants

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

On July 6, 2011, Janice Campbell, director of NAIWE, interviewed me for The Freelance Life. You can hear the interview here: http://www.talkshoe.com/talkshoe/web/audioPop.jsp?episodeId=507200&cmd=apop

In this 20-minute book chat, we talked about my book What to Charge: Pricing Strategies for Freelancers and Consultants. I reviewed the contents of the book and what makes it useful for freelancers at all stages of their careers.

Janice commented that she thinks this book is particularly strong because “it looks at pricing as part of an entire career strategy” providing “career-building counseling from someone who’s been doing it for a quarter of a century.”

I am honored that NAIWE has chosen What to Charge as the first book to be featured on the website’s bookstore. Click on Bookstore (http://naiwe.com/bookstore/index.php)¬†to purchase the book directly through NAIWE.
