I’ve talked before about how we corporate escapees start our service-based businesses as consultants, coaches, or healers because we:
- Have skills and talents we love to use that we want to share with the world
- Figured out the solution to a problem and want to share that solution with others who need it
- Feel called to a mission and want to dedicate our lives to making a difference
So we’re out on our own and we suddenly come face to face with our own crap.
We discover we hate selling and aren’t too crazy about marketing either.
We struggle to talk about ourselves and the value we bring to others.
And we can really struggle with money issues.
We don’t stay focused on the numbers and key performance indicators for running a profitable business.
I say “we” because this has certainly been true for me.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
It’s time to embrace our power…and that starts with understanding everything involved with pricing for profitability.
My guest today is Justin Krane. He’s a certified financial planner and money strategist for entrepreneurs.
Justin is known for his savvy, holistic approach to financial planning and he advises his clients on how to unite their money with their lives and businesses. And he does it using a unique system developed from his studies of financial psychology.
He educates and supports his clients in a non-judgemental way while helping them understand the financial side of running their businesses and making a profit.
Listen in as Justin explains:
- Why it’s critical to price for value and to create a premium pricing strategy
- The impact that self-confidence and self-worth have on our pricing strategy
- Why we’ve got to get to 6-figures as fast as possible
- Common mistakes made with pricing our offerings that limit our profitability and can create stress
- And ROL versus ROI
As always listen all the way to the end where I’ll share your cocktail exercise and action step for this episode.
