Dispel your very last doubts 👇🏼
🧐 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
► What problems will this guidebook help me solve?
All money-related problems a young freelance designer can encounter if he just started or if he's at the beginning of his career. This includes having low rates, being anxious about talking money with clients, afraid of client objections, not knowing how much to charge, not having any solid strategy when it comes to the financial aspect of their business, and many more.
What you might not realize yet, is that money issues are triggered by other inner issues, and money issues trigger other issues too.
For example, you might be charging too low. And you might struggle to charge higher because you don't convert clients when you raise your prices. Maybe what you don't know is that your skills and service also need to be raised, if you raise your prices, or that losing low-quality clients is a necessary step to move to high-quality clients, and that it's not proof that you're doing wrong, but proof that you're doing right!
Or perhaps...you have no idea about how to charge a client, how can you put a number on creativity, how you should know what's your worth?
Or...you're struggling to negotiate with a client, you get anxious whenever you need to talk about money and you're worried about what the client might say, or disagree with?
I summarized all of these topics in the guidebook, I explain them in-depth and give you multiple solutions you can apply to overcome them! Still hesitating? 👀

► How can I apply what I read?
I do mention a lot of examples of actions through the guidebook. It might be a lot to digest in one read, so what I suggest you do is to grab a pen and a notebook or open your favorite note-taking app and write a to-do list that you'll fill with tasks, as long as you read. Remember to divide all big tasks into bite-sized tasks so that you're not overwhelmed. Don't try to cross everything fast, it's a long-term process.
Don't forget that it's not a one-time read guidebook. It's a "GUIDE"book so it should be your guide. Do not hesitate to come back at it each time you're doubting something. I made it to be read multiple times, not just once!
PS: I also plan to write a to-do list after each important point of the guidebook on a future update, to give you even more direction on what steps you should take next!
► Why should I trust you, Hanna?
👉🏼 Because I've been there too, I made all client mistakes you can think about (literally)
👉🏼 Because I've been struggling with clients too, I've been anxious about charging money too
👉🏼 Because I know you can't relate to +20 years of experience design legend but you can relate to ME, because I'm just like you
👉🏼 Because I understood that in this world where information flows from everywhere, it's so easy to get lost, and the solution is to pick someone you can truly trust and follow their formula, and I dedicated my time, skills and focus to become that person for you
👉🏼 Because everyone keeps warning and telling you what you shouldn't do, but no one tells you concretely what you HAVE to do
👉🏼 And last but not least...
...Because I'm REAL. I'm not a billionaire, I'm not out-of-reach, I'm not seeking to make tons of money on your back. I'm just a branding designer who earns enough to live a decent life and crush my goals. And that's what I'll teach you to be too.
I have enough of seeing people selling you high success and a dream life you don't even need. Focus on what's next to you. Small steps, and enjoy the small wins. Put them together to achieve big wins over time. That's what I teach. No bullsh*t, no fluff, just the straight reality.
► Is there any way to have a refund/cancel my pre-order?
Except if there was a technical issue that prevented you from opening the guidebook file (with proof), no refunds are possible.
► Is it a real/physical book?
No, it's a digital product! If you order it, you'll receive PDF files.
► But $49 is too expensive!
Then don't buy it! Easy!
I'm not here to justify my prices (and that's also something I teach you on the guidebook hehe) and elaborate on why $49 is a good price. I don't care.
If you think it is too expensive, you don't need this guidebook. You're not ready to invest or I failed to convince you. In both cases, you won't make good use of it if you're buying it thinking it doesn't worth it, and it's totally fine. So don't bother, move on to something else!
I made this guidebook after years of observation and interaction with the design community. Besides having personally experienced all struggles related to not knowing enough about money, clients or even the design field itself, I also listened and exchanged about yours. I created this guidebook based on that & what I believe will help you become a better designer AND business owner.
At the end of the day, I don't really mind if you buy it or no. I just want you to TAKE ACTION and pursue the life that you deserve. Whether it's through my guidebook, a youtube video, a page of a book or a Google search, it doesn't matter. The most important thing is that you strive to be someone you can be proud of.
