Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love
We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.
But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.
48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.
If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.
The piece of advice I give to my coaching clients most often, and the one that remains unheeded, is that they need to charge more. Far too many of you are charging well below what you’re worth because you believe the wrong facts about your business and your own value.
See, it’s easy to think that if we raise our rates our clients will laugh right in our faces. They’ll tell us we’re simply not worth it and then they’ll tell everyone around us that we aren’t worth it so we’ll end up on the street.
To combat these false beliefs we need to fact check our story and find out what’s true.
The key to fact-checking a thought or story is to have a realistic assessment of the situation while actively searching for fueling facts. Fueling facts are true parts of our reality that give us hope and a sense of empowerment in the face of a challenge. - Broadcasting Happiness
You figure that you’re simply not worth the higher rates.
Ask yourself: “Do I know anyone who raised their rates and then couldn’t get work anymore?”
Write down the facts that support those feelings.
I can tell you that every single one of the people I’ve coached to raise their rates made more money with less time and had better clients.
Now that you have a realistic picture of what raising your rates means, maybe it’s time to raise those rates.
If you need help positioning your business for those higher rates, I’d love to talk.
