Hi David G,
That's a tough Q to answer. What's your experience for starters?
You're in MO, what's the average cost in your area? Do a competitive analysis to find out then use it to work out your fee.
Minimally you could draft a contract and get paid monthly if client's can't afford your price or 50% now with balance due upon completion. You might also consider some form of a trade-off in services by some clients whose services or products you could use.
You really have to work out what you need per month to operate then work out how many you'd have to secure to break even and make a profit.
