No one has single-handedly given me better insight about the business side of art than the New York Times bestselling author, Ramit Sethi. He’s a business savant, mindset master, habit king, and money maker.

Ramit is a regular on the show by now, and this episode is the first one we did together. It was such a hit and I still get so much positive feedback on how powerful his advice is that we had to share it with you on the podcast. Our conversation is packed full of both mindset shifts as well as tried and true tactical advice so you can earn more money. And we’re not talking nickels more. We’re talking 10x more. Give it a listen and give the techniques a try.

In this episode:

* If you can learn to understand your client, find solutions they need, and communicate in their language, price becomes a triviality. Show your future clients you’ve done the work by using “the briefcase technique.”

* We talk about negotiating. If you’re a freelancer, are you getting paid by the hour? We need to change that to value-based pay…

* Ramit shares how to, step by step, land your next pitch, freelance gig, double your rates, make more money. I’ve always felt very competent in this world, but Ramit’s knowledge helped me drive a step change into my growth around the business of creativity.
