Friday tips #10

Hello, lovelies! I´m so happy with #fridaytips, I´ve received so many kinds words from all of you and also from some friends that I never thought they would read it! So, thank you so much for being such an inspiration for my heart. I feel so close to you around here and this makes me feel blessed. 💕

Let´s start today´s tips! Well, at this time of the year I prefer a cold tea instead of my beloved warm coffee!

Friends, friends of friends & special prices: Well, this is a delicate subject. I´ve been there a lot of times and you probably have too. After some bad decisions and regrets, I finally came to a clear opinion. You don´t have to do it if you don´t feel like you really want to. It is your business, you have your target client and you´re investing your time and equipment like any other work you do. To sum it all up, you are investing your money. If you think, you are paying to work. Does it make sense? These people who ask about discounts, I´m sure they love to be paid for their work too. I´m not saying to say NO to everyone, you have to evaluate each situation: the relationship you have with this person, if this kind of work will fit your portfolio and if you have the time to do it without affecting your business plan. I don´t like when people ask for a special price just because they know me or they are a friend of a friend of mine, in true I think it is rude. Nobody on this planet should question your value, only you know it. Sometimes I make special prices, BUT because I want to. And I´m happy with my decision. And most of the times to friends that didn´t ask for it or to my clients that trust and love my work and have been with me for years. It is a gift I want to give them, it´s not an obligation. If you´re not comfortable and happy giving a discount to this or that person, don´t do it. Explain you cannot do it because it doesn't fit your business plan and inform this person about the value you charge and feel happy with. People will understand it, and if they don´t, just let it go, that just means they don´t value you as an artist and your beautiful work!
