October SPARK: Setting client expectations: Project scoping for freelancers

Are you just starting out and have no idea what to charge for your work? An experienced freelancer curious how to prevent client issues from arising mid-project?

This interactive workshop will walk you through best practices for scoping projects, from setting rates to setting boundaries. You don’t have to figure it all out alone!

We’ll cover:

  • How to clearly scope your project--and why it matters

  • Guidelines for setting rates

  • Avoiding issues with clients

$$ The event is FREE $$

There will also be time to network with other freelancers who may be able to offer tips you hadn’t considered before.

Regardless of industry, we all share similar experiences as independent business owners! We try to ensure everyone leaves with insights and connections that will help their business thrive.
