Budgets? We don’t need no stinkin’ budgets.
Or do we?
As a freelancer, you constantly have to work within a budget because once you and your client set the rate, it’s your responsibility to deliver the goods at the agreed-upon price.
And the better you are at controlling your expenses and time (and believe me when I say time is definitely money), the more cash you’ll be able to pocket once the project is complete.
It’s that extra pocket money that makes the difference between a highly profitable project and one where you just break even.
