The Freelancing Guide: Managing your finances will take you step by step through the process of pricing you work, quoting, invoicing and keep on top of your accounts. As creative people dealing with the financial side of our business can occasionally seem like a job you'd rather not have to deal with! But managing your money doesn't have to be a headache if you take a few simple steps through-out the year to keep on top of your profits. 

I will talk you through a few of the mistakes I've made in my years of freelancing and hopefully you can avoid doing the same! 

This class is for all of you who work for yourselves, run your own businesses or freelance... it's perfect for designers, illustrators, photographers, animators and artists. It will also provide any of you running your own shops with some helpful tips to managing your money.

Very good general overview... simple, concrete.
Great information, and not too daunting for a beginning freelancer. Great advice about keeping up with the receipts / bookkeeping on a regular basis. Thanks, Faye!

Faye has designed and art directed for interactive TV, DVD menus, title sequences for film and TV and commercials. Clients include the BBC, ITV, Discovery Channel, SyFy Channel and Aviva.
