You might be a photographer, engineer, writer, designer, makeup artist, or any kind of freelance worker, contractor, or consultant. Or maybe you have a company job but dream of working on your own. Chances are you’re interested in creating and a little unsure about billing, proposals, invoices, calendar management, how to set up an LLC—and if you can do it all yourself. Have you ever wished creatives like you had a coach, companion, or career center to turn to? In ten chapters, each topic is explained simply and with kindness, honesty, real examples, and no fluff.
Michael Ardelean packs 13 years of creative and business experience into this book, distilling what he’s learned about thriving financially as an artist:
- The benefits of freelancing and how to know if establishing a business is right for you
- How to know what you’re worth
- How to price your work—and how not to under-charge or feel guilty about charging clients what you’re worth
- How to write a professional proposal
- How to build fantastic client relationships—and what to do when relationships are difficult
- How to invoice and get paid on time
- How to network and grow your business
Art for Money is approachable, actionable, and written for creatives by a creative who’s seen it all.
You’ve already figured out how to be great at what you do. If you’re ready to become financially successful, too, the time you spend with this small book might be the best investment you’ve ever made in yourself.
