Exploring the dilemma of pricing work that springs from your natural gifts
Black Ivy, Edinburgh
£10 via Eventbrite
Self-employed creatives lost out on more than £5,000 of income for giving away work in hopes of gaining exposure and 20% of freelancers say giving away work for free is a standard practice, according to research. Is it because we undervalue our work or feel guilty charging money for our natural and intuitive gifts or our work isn’t recognised or respected by clients? We’ll hear from panelists on their journeys from uncertainty to confidence and how they navigated setting boundaries, building trust and making a living as one’s own boss. Moderator Liza Horan (MindstreamConnect) leads a panel discussion with storyworld creator Claire Colston (Fairy Worldwide), artist Rose Strang (Rose Strang Artworks) and spiritual coach David Thomas Wright. This event is part of the IPSE’s National Freelancer Day, and is presented by, covering mind-body-spirit pathways to wellness.
