In this episode of the Command+Edit Podcast Nick and I discuss the most important topic when it comes to freelance video editing…how video editors actually get paid!

Topics include what software and services we use to invoice, how to invoice, how we accept payments, how long it takes to get paid, whether you need to have an LLC in order to freelance, and taxes in the US and Canada.

As a reminder neither Nick or I am a tax professional or financial advisor by any stretch of the imagination. What we talk about is based solely our experience as two freelance video editors.

Some items mentioned in the episode include:
