We've all been there. We say yes to a gig, and as the event date nears, we start to resent taking it. The event organizer is entirely disorganized. The planning committee is demanding a few more meetings to review the content. The association's board members are asking you to come to the VIP party, do a book signing, and participate in a panel discussion. All of this after they negotiated your fee down to its bare bones.

Yep... it's frustrating, it's time-consuming, and it's exhausting. Most importantly, it takes the fun out of the gig.

So, this week, we're going to break down the warning signs using the Needy Fee Matrix so we can make more educated decisions before saying yes to these kinds of gigs.

Welcome to the Needy Fee Matrix!
