Nice summary Devon. It’s a spooky coincidence that I wrote something very similar recently, see https://medium.freecodecamp.org/what-to-charge-as-a-freelancer-does-value-based-pricing-live-up-to-the-hype-1af1d4d88ef7
We make so many of the same points, so of course I agree with nearly everything you’ve said.
I wish this stuff was talked about more. People seem afraid to be open about money and pricing, and its to the detriment of less experienced freelancers who find it difficult get straightforward advice on the subject.
