Flat Fee Freelancer (by Stephen Poynter)
It’s time to take the “free” out of freelancing
However many brilliant ideas, diligent hours of work, or good connections you have, it won’t mean a thing if you aren’t charging enough.
How do I know?
I’m Stephen Poynter, and I’ve worked a number of both corporate and entrepreneurial jobs, including in wealth management, consulting, digital marketing, vacation rental management, and other pursuits ranging from even candy vending machines to audiobook narrating.
And I’ve seen enough to know there are a lot of people with great potential that end up selling themselves short in the vibrant gig economy.
That’s what I’d like to help change.
In this book, I’ll show you:
- Why billing an hourly rate similar to what you would make as an employee is about as sure a path to extinction as there is – and why in fact you should probably charge at least 3 times more
- Why hours don’t even matter in the first place
- How to convince both yourself and your clients of the true value of your labor
- How to structure project fees that reflect your results rather than your time – and that help you stay alive and sane in the process
If you are going to be part of the freelance economy, I want you to do it well. The flexibility, autonomy, creative potential, and financial reward are there – if you know how to do it right.
Pick up your copy of this guide now to get the best tips I’ve learned on this journey. I trust it will help you not only survive, but thrive, as a freelancer.
I Am the North
Sitka Frost is not one to settle.
At nineteen, Sitka becomes the first Northerner to study at the prestigious academy in Sarona in over a hundred years. On an ambitious mission to reunite the land’s fractured regions while concealing her peculiar talents, Sitka’s dreams are thrust aside when she becomes a suspect in a mysterious death. Suddenly, she finds herself the subject of a scrutiny that could jeopardize not only her hidden gifts, but the future of the North.
Seventeen-year-old Tanya Kedrov wanted nothing more than to pass her senior year research class.
Fueled by an obsession with the disappearance of her sister, Tanya sets out to find a connection among Iron County’s history of disappearances. Her research leads her to a secret hidden in the deep of Minnesota’s wilderness, a secret no one else will believe. And when Tanya encounters the charismatic Sitka Frost, she finds herself caught between two worlds and in the thick web of ties that binds them together.

Best friends Ivy and Elle never expected change to come to Meryton High. The brink of junior year seemed to promise only the familiar juggling of classes, homework, and daily routines. But when three new students arrive in town, Ivy and Elle find themselves entangled in a drama that might take the whole year to untangle.
Told from the perspectives of two high school girls, this retelling of Pride and Prejudice brings Jane Austen’s classic story of love and friendship to life in the modern world. From first impressions and fights to love and forgiveness, Meryton High shows that lessons from two hundred years ago just might be relevant today.
