Sheffield Live Interview: Pricing creative work and dealing with trolls

sheffield live

You may remember a post I wrote called 'Things I've learnt about pricing creative work' where I discussed openly the difficulties that freelance creatives face when quoting their work. I had a great response from this and lots of interesting feedback - mostly from other creatives who totally resonated. One person who did not resonate, however, was a chap called Bernard who wrote a step by step assasination of the post and was very critical of me and my honesty. I wrote an open letter to him in a blog post entitled 'Dear Bernard, here's why I'll continue to be unprofessional' which had the most hits on any blog post I've written.

Jamie from Sheffield Live got in touch after he had read both posts and asked me to come on the show to talk about them. You can have a listen to the interview on the Sheffield Live site and Jamie's personal site below. Scroll half way down Jamie's post to play the timeline - I'm on the show from 09:18.
