Don’t give your work away: how to price it.

Pricing and monitoring financial performance are crucial to business success. This presentation covers the elements of budgeting and business planning. The methodology will help the participants develop personal criteria for accepting or rejecting freelance assignments, balancing employment offers and choosing alternatives for business expansion. The presentation will cover calculating the break-even price, and tracking sales volume and revenue. This is not a number-crunching presentation; come prepared to enjoy learning how to set your business on a solid financial footing and keep it there.
