Candidly 02: Knowing Your Worth and Getting Paid

"Candidly" is a panel discussion series brought to you by Dim Sum Media and Locale Workspace. Our goal is to unite DC's small business owners and entrepreneurs through shared experiences and issues. Each event will cover a different topic. When we can speak candidly together, we work and live better.

For the second event in this series, we're taking on knowing your worth and getting paid. In this creative gig economy, we're all competing for contracts and projects as freelancers, writers, photographers, designers, developers, performers, and artists. It's especially easy to get undercut by newbies who will work for free or cheap for exposure. This panel will cover how to set a value for your work, negotiate a rate, and get paid.

Your fantastic panel speakers:
Holly BassArtist & Educator
Virginia Arrisueño, Owner and lead designer of DeNada / Owner of Blanca Concepts LLC
Christian Dutilh, co-founder of Composite Co.
