How to skip the sales conversation as an introverted freelance UI/UX designer

Yard sign “for sale”

…selling is seen in creative circles as something you need to deal with begrudgingly to get to the fun part.

  • Selling is done only by super sleazy people and I’m not one of them.
  • The value of my work is obvious only by looking at it.
  • Whenever I try to negotiate, the situation always turns on me and I end up doing a lot more work for a lot less money than expected.
