Pricing Your Work
Saturday, 05/18, 8:00am – 12:00pm, Chaparral, Holiday Inn
All skill levels welcome!
Bob Brenner is the leather industry authority with decades of experience on how to price your work. Are you profitable? Even if you are, this workshop is designed to help you maximize your profits and avoid common pitfalls. This is a packed, 4-hour workshop based on Bob’s book, “How to Establish Prices for the Saddle Maker or Leather Worker”. You’ll receive this book (a $39.95 retail value) during the workshop, which will help you greatly in your note taking while Bob is teaching. This proven system will teach you how to establish a profitable hourly rate and price for your services and products, and it is updated by Bob continuously to reflect fair market pricing. These strategies can be used for anything you make. Bob uses this same system in his shop on a daily basis and this is his 21st year teaching this workshop, which tells you it is a valuable resource. If you’ve made it, he’s priced it (profitably)!
