Anne-Laure is an artist, facilitator and community builder. She helps individual or university organisations align and build together the relation to this vision through collectve art experiences.



Anne: Every time you meet a client, what I'm trying to do, and a lot of people would advise the same, ask this potential client, “Hey, can you recommend me someone else to meet with, just to have a coffee and get some feedback and understand?”



Anne: So that's a tip that you never leave, and if the person is busy or something, or they say, “I will follow up later.” And they don't, you do follow up, until they give you a contact.



Satya: Definitely go out there and be useful, and the second this is, understand that you have an inherent value, just because you have time, passion and interest in a certain topic.



it's important to reverse engineer how much you should be charging, because think about it from the perspective of, “How much money do I want to earn every month?” And then break that down into, “How much time do I have available to work on client projects?” And then come up with the project fee.
