Hey! I'm Hadassah Damien.
I teach this because I love supproting and being part of small businesses!
For starts, I’ve run six of my own freelance small businesses over the last 12 years. Before that, I worked for small business owners. And before THAT, I was raised by a small business owner who made SURE that I understood EVERYTHING.
And you know what? I love being a small business owner, and no matter what other ways I work, I will always run a side gig. (Like this one). It’s in my blood, and the money part is easy for me.
So, let me help you make it easy for you — so you can spend as much time as possible DOING your biz.
When you register, you’ll get:
- A two-hour video workshop taking you from start to finish on understanding your money when you work for yourself.

- BONUS 30-minute kickstart workshop + 24 page handout on managing, planning for, and understanding your uneven or irregular income
- EXTRA series on freelance taxes: a worksheet, video guide, and self-study reading material

The confidence you need to charge sustainable rates
- You only need one regular client or type of customer who pays an anchor rate to transform your work from grinding to sustainable. Yes, that would cover the costs of this course, but much more importantly by making a business plan you can learn how to transform your business into one that serves you for as long as you wish to run it.
If you were to work with me personally to get this level of detail and length of training, it would cost you at least $600 — if I could even talk at you that long (hint: unlikely) -- and my rates are more affordable than accountants and other trainings.
I hope you do yourself the favor of signing up for this valuable information today, and enjoy the videos, templates, written guides and inspiration!
