Jessica Abel on getting paid

January 18

Jessica Abel is one of those rare creative-business coaches who is actually a very accomplished creator herself. For example, her phenomenal graphic novel La Perdida is one of the best works within its genre.

Better yet, Jessica has a blog and podcast for creatives. To get an idea of how good she is, read her article Get paid without guilt: 6 lessons I’ve learned. Here are the six lessons:

  1. Don’t sacrifice your agency to gatekeepers or toxic myths that seek to control you
  2. Reject self-exploitation
  3. Value your work as work
  4. Articulate your work’s value
  5. Equitable does not mean “cheap”
  6. The way to creative freedom is through financial freedom… however you get there
