We have a wreath that looks just like that! Maybe I'll attach it to a sweater and live it up this holiday season. :)

@LarahRitchie Thank you so much Larah! I work extensively with Allison - so I'm definitely going to pick her brain about those resources. I like the idea about offering something to someone who is not a good fit for services right now...but may be later. I hate turning people away - I'm such a softie. But I've got a business to run!

I've really been enjoying this series - and agree that charging by the hour is not the way to go. But the examples that you list for a graphic designer or writer don't make a lot of sense. If someone can buy a blank template, why would they pay a professional? Isn't the target market for template DIY approach a lot different from doing custom work? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.
