Diagnosing what help is needed with a project and its cost

Hi, I’m a newbie so my apologies I’m posting this in the wrong arena. I have a project I’m in the process of developing but I’m already splitting my time very thinly teaching myself all sorts of software applications while holding down a very modest paying FT job unrelated to this project. It’s very unlikely I’ll have the time it would take for me to learn the Blender skills necessary for my project. I’m not sure how I could initiate a conversation with anyone who might be interested in volunteering to help me or for me to learn how how much it would cost to pay an accomplished Blender artist to help? Thank you for understanding.
