Are you feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, and trapped in financial drama? Chances are you’ve been bitten by the ‘LIKE ME’ bug. The need to be liked can fester for so long that it becomes a virus in your business, bank account, and life! When our desire to be liked is stronger than our desire for greatness, charging what we are worth becomes impossible.
If you want to make over six figures without exhaustion, serve your clients at a deeper level and have more freedom, flow, and fun in your life, then you need to break up with your ‘BEING LIKED’ addiction forever.
Understand this: your need to be liked is normal. It comes from the very human desire to be liked. However, and this is the key, it is a fear-based response that will leave you financially, spiritually and physically broke.
How much you are paid is linked to how much you value yourself, your time, and the contribution you make to others. Look at how you’re feeling now about your business and your bank account: what would it mean to you and your life if you began to charge your clients $5,000, $10,000 and even $50,000 or more to work with you?
Several years ago, I was shattered by the roller coaster of running my own company. I hit a wall and literally begged the Divine to show me the way. At this stage, I was prepared to walk away from my business if I didn’t start making serious money immediately. Something had to give.
I decided that I was either going to spend my days meditating (happy but penniless), get a J.O.B (soulless but with some $ in the bank), or I was going to figure out how to run a highly successful coaching and branding consultancy without draining my soul and my finances.
After a major freak out, I decided to choose the latter. I was very clear about the life I wanted to create and quitting was NOT an option for me. I wanted to make it work so much that I could taste it!
Up until this point, I’d been charging $150 an hour for my coaching service and while my clients were thriving, I was left struggling. After one sleepless night, I decided to create my first high-end program. I said my prayers and cleared my mental cobwebs. I made a pact with myself. It was now or never. I was going to start making more money with Divine feminine flow.
I followed my intuition, started downloading from the Divine and went to town creating programs that lit me up!
Next, I started charging $3,000, then $5,000 for my coaching packages and when that felt too small and constricting I moved to $10,000. Now I have $20,000 to $50,000 packages for clients to work with me privately. And I want you to know I didn’t start making money as a business coach. I launched with my Juicy Life Makeover and BodyLove Programs. Trust me, you certainly don’t need to be a business coach to make money in the multi-billion dollar, online education business!
Skyrocket your income and claim your inherent divine Power. Skyrocketing your income is a process of growth, mindset, vision and marketing.
If you master and implement the art of selling high-end programs, you’ll move from being pushed around by life to being a woman in the driver’s seat of your dreams, health, and money. When you step into your greatness, your soul clients will flow into your business. They’ll be drawn to your authentic power and purpose.
Your ideal clients will be the ones who are prepared to do the work. They’ll value your greatness and commit to building their own. In short, they’ll be the best customers you’ve ever had! And it gets better! Those that no longer align with your new energy will fall away and your life will be richer for it. Beautiful.
Instead of staying trapped in struggle, shift into abundance by healing and invigorating your purpose. Create high-end programs that truly serve your clients. When you own your worth, follow your Divine calling, and design a business that’s an authentic expression of who you are, your business will take off. It did for me.
Break free from your need to liked with these sassy CEO Diva solutions:
Solution #1: ASK for abundance and Divine power.
Never work alone. Get connected. The moment you do, a new level of guidance and love will lift you up and into light.
Chant this Divine Calling until you feel it merge with every cell of your being.
I am a powerful vixen who means what I say and says what I mean with HEART. I am connected to my value, and I communicate my prices with clarity, confidence, and LOVE. I am rich and divine, and I deserve the best in my life for myself and all those involved. When I rise up, I lead others to do the same. Please heal and guide me into my Divine power and Divine abundance with love and ease. I now allow money to flow into my life with GRACE. Thank you.
Solution #2: Raise your worth. Raise your voice. Raise your prices.
What helped me generate over $100,000 in six months was my decision to increase my coaching rates. I’ve since gone onto have $50K days and $100K weeks. Yes, it sounds rather ‘rah rah’ but it’s true, and I won’t lie: it’s wonderful building a business doing what I love, without sacrifice, as opposed to having a business that makes you feel like you’re just hanging on!
Raising your fees by delivering epic service from a place of overflow and radiance, instead of exhaustion and financial overwhelm, is liberating for yourself, your loved ones and your clients.
Let’s be honest. You’ll do better work and you have fun doing it. And, if we’re talking impact, then you most certainly can’t expect to make a difference on a grand scale without maintaining your physical, financial, and emotional wellbeing. Abundance heals.
This is such a powerful up leveling process. If you’re feeling constricted or resentful in any way around your service, look at charging more for your work. Think bigger. It can be scary to move from selling your services by the hour to selling high-end programs or doubling your high-end program rates, but it’s worth it.
Spend quality time reflecting on what feels BIG for you and then get to work designing a program that delivers juicy transformation for your clients and makes a motza for you.
Solution #3: Get crystal clear on your desire and ALLOW it to LIGHT your fire.
Without clarity on what you yearn for in your business and life, you open yourself up to scattered energy, often saying ‘yes’ when you should say ‘no’ and even ‘no’ when you should be saying ‘yes’.
This can result in being trapped in constant busyness with nothing much to show for your efforts except exhaustion.
Overcome this by writing down a list of your top 20 desires. Once you’re clear about your core desires, you can move forward with crystal clear clarity and energy alignment. Next, commit to saying ‘no’ to one thing you’ve previously said ‘yes’ to and see how that feels. It takes practice, but soon you’ll become more comfortable with your new power and clarity. You’ll know what’s important and what’s not and that will make you one empowered, focused CEO Diva.
Solution #4: Surround yourself with a LOVING SISTERHOOD & Get Rock Star Support
Get support. Hire a coach. Break the cycle. Heal your soul.
Women often feel they need to go at it alone and figure it out for themselves but what tends to happen is they stay stuck. The truth is women thrive in a tribe. Getting help is an act of power, not weakness. Do yourself a favor: jump off the struggle treadmill by finding yourself a mentor to guide you into owning and rocking your greatness. Just do it. Surround yourself with people who are going to lift you higher!
And one final note: Be mindful of who you choose to support you when hiring a mentor. Tune in. Ask questions and find someone who really sees you and what you’re capable of. Here are some questions to ask prospective coaches:
•Where do you see me going?
•How will you help me to get there?
Here’s what I’ve discovered – valuing yourself not only heals my bank account but heals the world. Money and vision creates epic change.
This goes beyond what I can get. It’s about what I can GIVE without it costing me or my loved ones. It’s about being truly nourished by my work, my life and my relationships.
Playing small serves no one, least of all ourselves.
Keeping yourself impoverished in any way brings more pain to yourself and that doesn’t serve anyone. As you value yourself, your clients will begin to value you. I strongly believe that financially and emotionally empowered women will change the world.
It starts with us. It starts with you. That’s how all revolutions begin.
