Here’s a new quote about selling our time as freelancers, from The Freelance Way, chapter Pricing:
“As freelancers we are generally selling our time in some form, no matter what our prices are or how we set them. And this even applies for celebrities, for example when Robbie Williams asks £1.6 million to perform at the wedding of the daughter of a Russian oligarch, or Ian McKellen refuses $1.5 million to marry off businessman Sean Parker while dressed as Gandalf. Or when the unbeatable boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. leaves early retirement to rake in an estimated $300 million for a single fight with Conor McGregor and, through a technical KO, raises his number of wins without a defeat to an even 50.”
