Ladies, HOW OFTEN DOES SOMEONE ASK IF YOU CAN "DO IT FOR LESS?" How often do you think they'd ask that if you were male? ... Exactly! Sometimes people may think our work is "less valuable," or they think we'll lower our price because we're "nice." Don't cave to the question! Simply communicate the value they're getting and what they would get at a lower price point. | Fairygodboss

I have a small word of mouth crochet business where I make custom items. I have had people ask me to make something and then get upset when I tell them the price - which I spell out very clearly before I even say I’ll take on the commission. People think that my time is less valuable because I’m creating things at home. I have been asked if I could charge less because the item is small - like a baby sweater as opposed to a blanket. um... no. Each item is unique. Each item takes time regardless of size and sometimes the smaller things take longer because they involve a lot more detailed work. I would rather not take a commission than sell myself short.
