Learn the limits of your market. You could be worth hundreds of dollars an hour, but you won’t survive if your clients can’t (or won’t) pay that much.
Skills and Experience
If you’re fresh out of school, with little experience, you should have a different rate than those who have honed and practiced their skills over several years.
Desired Income Level
Dreaming of an adventurous vacation? Then determine exactly how much you need to make per hour to get you the annual income you need to reach your goals.
No Two Rates Are the Same
No two business owners will necessarily have the exact same rate. Charging your worth is about more than just the hours you put in.
Today’s Rate ≠ Tomorrow’s Rate
The rate you charge today should be different than the one you charged five years ago and the one you charge in five years from now.
