How to Get Paid What You Are Worth
The interior designers guide to accurately charging your client for your time
Can you remember the last time that a potential client thought that all designers and decorators work for FREE?
When was the last time that you were competing with someone from a company that provides “free design services”?
Do you work with clients that add things on to your “to do” list, but don’t pay for the added work?
Have you ever worked with a client who expects you to do substantially more work than what you are getting paid for?
Are you working long hours, running all over town and still struggling to pay the bills?
