"As a 'solopreneur', I have learned to wear a lot of hats. I operate a business focused on providing artistic goods and services. Until I took Don Herrmann’s workshop, Managing Your Business for Growth and Profit - The Numbers, I was lacking in confidence in my pricing. Don’s workshop breaks down the mystery of sustainable product and service pricing into a few concise and manageable steps. He helped me identify hidden and future expenses and broke down my production into minutes. I loved how the workshop had structure, yet was flexible enough to allow questions and feedback from others."
