The Creative Professional's Guide to Money addresses the money questions that a wide range of creatives are dealing with, including how to:

  • Develop the business mindset required to take your business to the next level.
  • Position your price and talk about money with confidence.
  • Get out of the money fog.

This book is aimed at creative types, and based on Ilise Benun's 20+ years of experience working with creatives as the founder of Marketing Mentor. But it’s equally valuable to anyone who has a special talent or service to offer the world but hasn’t quite figured out how to get people to pay for it.

It offers a  wealth of guidance on deciding how much you’re worth, presenting that figure with a straight face and then managing all the nuances of what happens next if, to your astonishment, someone actually agrees to your price.

If you take only a fraction of the advice in these pages, you can count on a solid return on your investment. You probably won’t even feel awkward talking about it. And that’s money in the bank.
