7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

This workshop has been developed to help those who are self-employed, including entrepreneurs and those working in creative industries, learn how to charge appropriately for their services. It is the first of a series created by Dr. Cynthia Chan and Lana Lontos to support the challenges of self-employed people.

It is a common challenge for those working for themselves to know how much is reasonable to charge clients. The equation of figuring out the value of a service needs to take into consideration: how you value your time, your self-care practices, how much extra time goes into the preparation and travel and the flow of your work schedule.

Learning Objectives:

1. Tapping into your intuition and listening to your body to help you make decisions

2. Figuring out what the right amount is to charge for you, that honours your work ethos and experience, and what that amount feels like in your body

3. Streamlining your work schedule to maximize energy flow

4. Learn how to confidently communicate your fee schedule to your clients
