Twice recently, I have been made aware that my day rate is significantly less than some other consultants doing a similar role. This has made me question what is the right amount to charge? I am passionate about supporting the projects and causes that I work for. I keep my overheads low by working from home and charging travel expenses etc to my projects. I pass this good value onto my clients.
On the other hand, I am good at what I do and I know that I will provide excellence in whatever I am commissioned to do. So, am I underselling myself? Would people value me more if I charged more?
Something to think more about…
