How Much Could You Charge as an Independent Consultant?

raining-cashIt is clear that the trend toward self-employment is growing. To help you navigate this changing work landscape, MBO Partners President & CEO Gene Zaino is back to help you understand how much to charge for your services as an independent.

While leaving a comfortable yearly salary to start your own consultancy may seem daunting, the move can be a lucrative one. As you transition to independence, or even if you’ve been self-employed before, one question must be addressed for every consultant: how much do I charge?
Following up on his previous presentation, Becoming the Boss of You: How to Join the Self-Employment Movement Gene will walk you through the basics of calculating how you should bill for your services as a professional independent consultant. In this webinar, you will hear:

  • A summary of the possible calculation approaches
  • A step-by-step approach consultants can use to help arrive at a pricing strategy
  • Real-world case studies that demonstrate the pros and cons of each method

Take the next step towards becoming the boss of you and learn how to calculate an accurate and effective rate for your services.

    Well – this strengthened my faith in my business instincts and validated the method I used to determine my hourly rate. Very clear and easy to follow and very valuable.
