This week for art 3 of the RubberOnion Freelance School we’re talking about the likely goal in your third year: making more money. There are a lot of things that you can do to shake up the status quo and get some more green in the bank but the number one item is to charge more. That, however, is much harder to do than to say so let us break it all down for you and give you tips, stories, analogies and metaphors to help you set your monetary goals and meet them!
