105 - Deciding when to start charging for your work is like having a baby: You're never going to feel completely ready.

Regardless, this week Heather and I hope to convince you that if someone in your market is willing to pay you for photography, then forpetessake LET THEM PAY YOU!!! Have a listen, and hear us out.
