If you’ve never run a business before it can be tough to know what to do to make your business profitable and how to avoid not getting paid by a client


When it comes to creating commission artworks, not only do you have to know how to price your works appropriately, but you also have to make sure you get paid on time and have a continual cashflow coming in to cover shortfalls in work.

This mini-course is designed to give you two simple strategies for your business to make sure you always get paid by your clients and have a steady source of income coming in. These form the basis of your Payment Terms - the terms that govern how and when you expect to get paid by your clients.

Your Payment Terms are your number one guarantee that you will ALWAYS be paid for your work and be able to keep cash flowing into your business. 

In the second part of the course I will discuss some ways to make extra income out of your projects to help your business thrive. 

I'll be covering:

  • How to make sure you ALWAYS get paid for your work
  • Deposits 
  • Final payments
  • What to do if a client won't pay
  • How to make more money from your projects.
