Project Description


Hello Everyone!

Due to the nature of this class and how personal money is I understand most will not be willing to share their own numbers. Instead I think it would be helpful to write a blog style post about your own experience working with clients and negotiating prices. It would be a great way of starting a conversation and learning even more from others.

Attached you'll find a few documents. 

• My example of a quote document.

• My example of an invoice.

• A class outline with a concise description of each section.

Feel free to use this information as a template and then adapt to suit you and your business. Make sure to always do your own research about pricing for your specific industry and the country in which you live.

Also please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions, I am of course here to help if you get stuck anywhere along the way.

You can also find me on Instagram and YouTube for more content.

Thanks so much for taking my class!

XOXO Kristina
