This is just a little thought to start the week. Everyone knows that the stats on business failure are downright depressing, but those stats don’t have to your story. Failure doesn’t have to be business-ending event; it can be one necessary step in the journey to create the business and life you want.
As you start or build your business, one thing that successful entrepreneurs would never do is
Hesitate to raise their prices.Self-limiting beliefs in yourself or your business can keep your prices out of line from the value and results you get your customers. You do good work, but you worry that if you raise your prices you’ll lose too much business.
Our goal should always be to get compensated what we’re worth. If a customer doesn’t want to hire you because your prices are too high, they’re probably someone you wouldn’t want to work with anyway. Successful entrepreneurs avoid “tire kickers” at all cost. They learned long ago it’s not worth the effort to try to convert them, and even if they did, there will always be a complaint from them.
Good customers see the value in hiring someone who has done what they want to do and can help reduce their learning curve. Pricing should be based off of value, and successful entrepreneurs charge according. If you’re doing good work and helping people, charge a fair price that makes what you do worth your time and effort. Your time is your most valuable resource.
Have a nice day,
