Super good advice for everyone! I am often on both sides of this advice - negotiating contracts as a services supplier FOR a client and negotiating AS the client, talking to freelancers to help us with our own projects.
#5 is an especially good one for me because I’m an entrepreneur. And this is a strong point for all artists and creatives looking to build their business and client base — don’t take things personally! Don’t be emotional. And I know … how hard is that?!
