It took time. A LOT more time than I had wished.
I would see success story after success story on Facebook and after a moment of joy for that person, would immediately wonder what the hell I was doing wrong.
I hit bottom. A lot. I cried. A lot.
I signed up for freebie after freebie that promised answers about that tool or strategy I must be missing.
Months went by with zero dollars coming in.
I questioned my value, and wondered if this was really my path.
One day I swore to my coach I would get a client that week and I got 5. I celebrated and threw my heart into it- even when I knew my rate was too low. Something was better than nothing and at least I was helping people.
And then I just got mad. Mad that I was still struggling despite helping people change their lives. Mad that I wasn’t honoring my value. Mad that I wasn’t thriving in my life- I had struggled enough.
I got tired of being sick and tired.
So I made a decision to charge what I wanted to charge. I decided to ignore the comments about coaches who “overcharge”. I knew these comments came from THEIR money story, not mine. I knew they didn’t know what I offered and it was a blanket statement, not about me.
If someone feels I overcharge, that’s their business not mine. And they will work with a coach that feels right for them.
My dream clients find me. They respect the big numbers and see value in spending money on themselves. Even if they don’t have it yet- they open themselves to receive it.
I’m glad I never sold a program at $5K, $10K, or $15K. It wasn’t where I wanted to be and it wasn’t where my clients are either.
Building your dream business is not an overnight kind of deal. If it’s taking longer than you want, it doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you. It doesn’t mean it’s not the right thing.
It means you’re building a real business. It means you’re getting to see the places that need expanding so you can BECOME the success you want to be. It means your Soul is being stretched.
Decide whether or not this is for you. Trust yourself and the process. Know you are enough. If this is really for you- keep going. Stop reading and buying into posts that derail you. Filter out the beliefs and ideas that don’t support your vision.
Give yourself permission to do things YOUR WAY. People will always talk- but that’s their business not yours.
I support you. I’m excited for you. And if you’re reading this now, I connected with your energy as I wrote this and I’m talking to YOU.
If you want support on your journey, if you want to be charging premium rates and you’re not sure how to do it, schedule a call with me. I’m holding space for 3 magical clients to catapult into high ticket freedom.
You can do this!!!
Love and magic my friends. Xo
