A freelancer’s passion is to help people in some way whether you’re offering writing, design, or another service. Being a little too helpful can cause us to not set proper boundaries with our clients. Beware — unclear boundaries and doing favors don’t help your bottom line.
Rush work is a specific area where you need to be careful. A client who asks for a rush job is asking you to do something that’s above and beyond your work terms. Taking on rush work is an opportunity to increase your service fee.
