Sail Financial Kickstart Program

Updated 3 months ago ​by Stuart Balcombe

With the Sail Financial Kickstart Program, we'll help you get a handle on the financial aspects of your freelance business – from pricing your services, to creating better payment terms with your clients, to managing your freelance income.

By the end of the program, here’s what you can expect to receive:

  • The best practices for onboarding new clients we’ve developed from working on hundreds of projects.

  • A clear process for structuring your client relationships in a way that benefits your cash flow.

  • Actionable advice on pricing as it relates to your take-home pay.

  • A complete hands-on walk through of how to use Sail to gain control of your freelance project finances.

  • Up to five (5) hours of dedicated time from me (Stuart, your success partner).

If you're interested in joining the program we currently have a limited number of spots available. Send me an email stuart@letssail.co, with a quick summary of you and your business.
