Millo Mastermind is a great place to talk shop about the business side of freelancing.

We’re all great designers, writers, illustrators and artists, but the thought of contracts and pricing and scope creep can send even the most battle-tested freelancers running back to full-time employment.

That’s why we decided to create a space dedicated to answering your financial questions. Once a month, we’re going to answer reader questions from awesome masterminders like you here on Ask a Freelancer.
