I have a couple of key learnings. The first is take action: go out there and start speaking to everyone and anyone who is within three feet of you. Find out what their problems and challenges are, and be okay with letting them know that you may be able to help them – and then be okay with charging for that! A lot of coaches that they need to do “more” before they’re ready for that, but they’re ready the moment they decide they are. That’s the reality.
Be okay with putting your prices up! If you’re going out and finding paying clients, be okay with lifting your prices. That will increase your self-worth, and it will also attract the clients you need. When people pay, they pay attention. When people pay a lot, they pay a lot of attention. The more money that people invest, the more value they take from the conversation – they’re more committed.
Finally, be open to asking somebody’s advice who’s been there and done that – and take time to not only listen, but to implement it into your business. For a long time, I was asking mentors for advice – and I’d take on board what they said with a “but” rather than with an “and”. Take action on advice, and do what they’ve said.
Then ask for more!
