-speak freely about money with clients
If you want to feel more confident about money, start by talking about it. Money is a taboo topic for many people, which can make it harder to feel comfortable discussing it. Designers who want to be successful in business need to be confident when discussing their value and be able to talk about money with clients. This includes knowing how to price projects, budget, what should be included in a contract, and how to address any money issues that come up during the course of a project.
You will be able to better serve your clients and find more success when you have a clear design philosophy. This will help to attract your ideal clients while also dissuading those who are not a good fit. It is important to remember that not everyone is the same, and this includes designers. Each one has their own unique approach to design that should be celebrated. Specializing in what you do best will lead to happier clients and a more successful business overall.
