More Money Fears
This might sound a little hypocritical, but when I first started practicing, I was surprised that people would actually pay me for my work. I was surprised because, deep down, and truthfully I’m not sure that I would have paid for my services.
I’ve always had a difficult time paying for services. I’m more of a hands on, DIY sort of person and if there is a way I can do something myself I would try to figure out how to do it. All in the name of saving a few dollars.
(I now know the value of my time—something I never figured in before—and so I was actually overpaying most of the time.)
My Stuff Is Not Their Stuff
Because I was uncomfortable paying for services I usually assumed that other people wouldn’t want to pay for my services as well. This usually got me in a lot of trouble because I never asked for the sale. I never truly believed in my own product and so had a hard time convincing others that they should pay for it.
When I finally learned that other people are actually very comfortable paying for things I started to get more clients. I started to be more comfortable assuming they’ll pay me. I started to stop being apologetic when I was taking their check out of their hands.
I'd love to hear from you, so leave a comment or connect on any of the various social media platforms.
