Thank you for this article. Unfortunately, it is very common to underbid your own worth. Many beginners just shoot for a random value and that value is not based on anything really. Why $14? What is that based on. I assume nothing.
I recently wrote an article on how you should calculate your hourly rate. It is based on tons of variables.
It's tragic really, with a rate of $14, you are PAYING to be able to work...
