The Right Pricing Strategy

"But what should the price be??"

Every program and every offer for coaches, teachers, healing practitioners and creative entrepreneurs eventually comes down to this question. Last week, on the Get Right with Money call, we talked at length about pricing. There is such a crazy range of pricing, it can be daunting to decide what you will charge for your brand of awesome.

Whenever there is a question around pricing, there are lots of "shoulds" and often buckets full of confusion, anxiety, and...

Playing with Money Energy

Horses aren't my "thing".

Not close up, at least.  Yes, yes, they are pretty and majestic and all that jazz (pictures! send me pictures!!), but they are also big. In person, I find their energy somewhat disconcerting, alien, and well, BIG.

Last year, I got in the ring for an Equus coaching experience.

I had been hearing SO much about getting in a round pen with a horse with the intent of joining up with the horse - the whole goal, as I heard it, is to get the horse to acknowledge you as...

No Competition

When we are fully ourselves, there is no competition.

I went to business school and I know all about competition and differentiation... blah, blah, blah.

All of that stuff leads people to believe that you "have to" do things a certain way to succeed.  I simply don't agree.

Competition only exists if you aren't being who you are meant to be.

When our purpose, our gifts and talents, our true desires, and our actions are all in alignment - when we've burned off all the crap about who we...

One and the Same

You are brilliant.

I mean, fucking amazing.  There are things that you do that no one else can do like you do (YOU know what they are).  No matter how you feel about it, it's true.

You tuck your brilliance away for a variety of reasons.

So you don't make other people feel bad about themselves. Or, so people will like you and won't leave you. Or, to be modest - a good girl.  Or whatever your reason is. At it's core, when we don't own our value - it's an omission of the truth.

Not Quite Ready

I don't feel quite ready.

I need a little more training, or perhaps a PhD (maybe two), to really, really, really be ready.  I would rather dance around the issue when my friends ask me what direction my business is heading.  I am filled with excuses and the chatter of my mind about my essential state of lack.  Just one more class because who I am just... isn't.... quite... enough for what I am being pulled to do.

This is a lie.

It's a lie I didn't really know I was telling...

Bragging Rights

My daughter has great friends.

We are blessed to live in a great neighborhood with lots of girls Clara's age.  Yesterday, Clara went to a birthday party with some of her favorite girlfriends and I ran into the birthday girl's Mom this morning as I was walking the dog. I was getting the debrief from this Mom and we were talking about how the girls talk to each other.  As an example of a conversation between the girls, the Mom told me that as the girls were heading to the party, Clara...

The "Truth" About Wealthy People

Research has now "proven" what so many suspect.

Yes, rich people are unsympathetic assholes, to paraphrase this article on LearnVest daily. Financially wealthy people have no empathy, they lack social skills, they are selfish, and more unethical than people who are broke.

So all of you that would like to make a good living doing ethical, purpose-driven work, based on your empathy and social skills? Well, if you make a lot of money doing it, you are destined to become a class-A jerk.

Your...
