Calculating day rate vs hourly. Currently charging $65/hr. Mid level, 7 yrs experience. What would you charge as your day rate?

I think you can easily get over $65/hr

Multiply by 10. Nobody works just 8 hours, so it keeps you from being screwed on those longer days.

I’m 5 years in and charge 70-75/hr. Also depends where you live.

I’m 3 years and I charge at least $100/hr

65 is low. My hourly is 55, 20 more than full time.

Use your annual salary as a guide to your freelance rate. Use Glassdoor to see what others make. Take the annual and divide by 125 to get your freelance rate. This compensates for taxes, insurance, vacation days, sick days, retirement matches, etc. $80K fulltime = $650/day freelance $100K = $800/day $125K = $1000/day $150K = $1200/day
