If you want to charge more for what you do, then do it.

You will need to match up the experience to the price tag, but I’ll bet you have something absolutely special enough to charge more for, so all you’re getting wrong is the positioning and the message.

Give yourself permission (er, NOW)

1

Permission is something we don’t actually need, but SO many of us feel we do. I know that I used to want it. A lot.

Because, of course, there isn’t really anyone who is stopping you from doing your Thing, from being as famous as you want to be, from standing in a super-bright spotlight, from doing exactly what you want to do the way you want to do it (given legal parameters of course!).

One of the things I love about social media is the insight it gives you into how other people do their Thing and live their life (not technically snooping if people are sharing, right?).
