3 Hints, Clues, & Tell Tale Signs It’s Time To Raise Your Fees

When it comes to fees and charging, most women feel a lot of conflict. We care.  we’re women… it’s a double-whammy of cultural conditioning that says “give it all away.”

The thing is, this leads to women chronically undercharging and waiting far too long to charge what their work is really worth. It may feel giving and generous, but as the saying goes, you can’t give from an empty cup. Ultimately, undercharging leaves you depleted and defeats your purpose of making a big impact in the world.

Here are 3 “dead giveaways” (and one bonus!) that both you and your clients will be better served by giving yourself a raise:

Hint #1: You’re exhausted instead of exhilarated.

In the beginning of my journey, I would spend hours and hours and hours and hours (did I mention hours?) on projects that paid very little. I’d package together credit repair, debt repayment plans, building business credit and helping my clients fund their business all in a done for you package.Sure, the money was nice when it was coming in, but 40+ hours on the project later or 9 months later … let’s just say it was hard to stay motivated. And I love helping people get to the next level in their businesses.

Doing what you love should inspire, well, love. And gratitude. If you’re not feeling the love, that’s a big clue that you’re falling far short of receiving money in alignment with the energy you’re giving – and you simply can’t sustain that for the long haul.

Clue #2: You feel resentful towards your clients.

Ironically, women who undercharge often find themselves attracting needy and demanding clients. But even the best of clients can become a drain when you’re not charging enough. (Or not charging enough and over delivering!) If you’re feeling resentful and feeling guilty… it’s time for a shift.

Tell-Tale Sign #3: You’re working constantly and still just getting by.

You can always create more money, but you can never create more time. So when you’re signing on clients and charging too little, what happens? You get burned out… quickly.

One of my past Diamond clients was in a situation where she had two choices: continue to serve the last few clients in the “old way” of working (dollars for hours), or release them with love if they weren’t ready to step into her new high-end packages. The decision was really weighing on her because they were awesome clients who she deeply cared about. (There was a lot of history there, too – all of them had been with her for years.)

With a little coaching, she had a huge breakthrough: saying yes to those old clients would have meant saying no to herself – her own needs, self-care, time with her family, and her dreams of a much bigger business. (And the opportunity to give those clients something bigger to step into, as well.)

And here’s one more hint, clue, & tell-tale sign you’re charging too little…

When clients consistently buck and complain about your already-low fees, chances are it’s time to raise them. Counter-intuitive, I know, but experience has shown this again and again. (Definitely in the early part of my journey, increasing the price of a struggling offer would often increase conversion.)

“But Shameca,” you may be saying, “My fees are already way too low and people are complaining. How can I raise them when I can’t even get them to say yes now?” (I hear this all the time!)

The way to authentically increasing your fees is this…

To increase your fees and feel great about it, you must stay connected to the value of the transformation your clients get. What really gets to happen for them as a result of your work? How can their lives change when they step up and you step up… together?

Often this means letting go of the clients who aren’t a fit for the value you provide, and turning your attention to those who are. Remember, Like attracts Like. When you own your value first, you’ll naturally attract clients who value you… and themselves as well.

3 Simple Ways To Give Your Business A Financial Fresh Start For This Year!

As a woman entrepreneur, whether your business is robustly moving forward or you’re just getting started, its common to have a bit of “emotional baggage” (or negative money B.S. as I like to call it) you may be carrying around, that is slowing you down.  For example, maybe you have debt or perhaps you’re ready to increase your fees. but you’re feeling a slight twinge of guilt or fear that people won’t pay.  Or maybe you see the perfect mentoring program you want to invest in but your spouse is skeptical that it will be a wise investment.  Once thing is certain, if you carry past baggage with you into the new year, you’ll have a much tougher time creating success.  which is why this is the perfect time of the year to give your finances a fresh start.

The mistake that most women entrepreneurs make is not knowing exactly what type of financial actions they should take.  Let’s be real, it just isn’t a topic that is discussed.  which is why i’m sharing 3 of my BEST tips with you on how to give your finances a fresh start as you head into the new year.  And while you may not be able to wave a magic wand or sprinkle a little pixie dust and magically make your debt dissapear or make your husband change his mind, you can create a plan that addresses the emotional and practical aspects that make of every woman business ownere’s financial future.

Tip #1 – Stop Being A Victim of The Past and Falling Prey to Your Money B.S.
Women hold themselves to a level of perfectionism that leaves no room for mistakes.  Trust me we’ve all lent money to people we shouldn’t have, let worrying about what others think keep us playing small, given away our power with money,  or we’ve made decisions to purchase something that we later regretted.  You can’t change the past but what you can do is stop carrying it around with you!  So instead of feeling guilt or shame or blaming fate or circumstances for what’s happened, learn to forgive yourself.  Forgiveness is an act of the will, extreme compassion and understanding for the tiny part of you  that was doing her best when you made those decisions.

Tip #2 – Don’t Let The Debt Demon Stop You From Growing Your Business
I often this from many women entrepreneurs, ” Shameca, how can I invest in growing my business when I have debt?”  Or they’ll say, ” I don’t want to pile on more debt”.  First realize the best way (or chance) to pay off your debt (most likely) will be by growing your business, because you’ll have the increased cash you need to make more than your minimum monthly payments.   Next, understand that investing in growing your business while you may still have debt makes perfect sense if you are committed to taking action and implementing.  I’ve metored hundreds of women entrepreneurs on my simple cash flow debt pay-off strategy and i’ve discovered that those who take massive decisive action in their business are the ones who also pay off their debt faster than others.

Tip #3 – Create Boundries Around Money That Empower You And Others
Women tend to cave in on their boundries because in some way they feel responsible for other people’s feelings.  But giving in means giving up on your self-respect  and losing the respect of others.   And those yucky feelings and negative energy ofter flow through to other areas of your business, impacting your fees, the types of clients you attract, and so much more.  My advice?  Its far better to experience a moment of discomfort while upholding a boundary than it is to untangle a money mess later on.  No I’m not saying you need to be the wicked witch when it comes to maintaining a boundary.  Boundaries are easily upheld from a place of kindness, consideration, and connection, all of which helps you stand in your power with confidence!
