Is Your Pricing Sorry?


I made the decision about a month ago, to quit playing with my prices and use the price points that I researched extensively. My research included web searches, informational interviews, and senior business advisers. I wanted to have the fairest pricing available. I have had a couple people that have known me for awhile question my pricing. I lost confidence in my pricing and tried to appease people at prices that were not at benefit to me or them.  Today, I am pleased with the increase and consistency in quality and detail I am able to provide to clients. I know that I am competitively priced  for the services I render.

A couple weeks ago, I finished up a 90-day strategy with a debut author that had no previous digital footprint and started working on action steps. I charged him my standard rates and was able to create a practical, creative, strategy for him that I am really excited about. He sold 18 copies of his self-published book within one week of us working together. When I told him how much for next week's session, his response was "that's all?" Note to self: Value yourself and the rest will follow.

Do All Blogs Go to Heaven?
A couple years ago I started to see a decline in my blog reader engagement.  Unlike the 95% of bloggers who give up on their blogs, I knew what to do. After all, I have been blogging for almost 15 years. I simply wasn't doing it. I was spreading myself too thin, disorganized, and to be honest...a bit bored/burnt out.
Here we are two years later. With the new addition to the family (shown below), I have less time than ever. So, why in the heck would I decide to rebirth a blog? Good question. There is a lot of research on the increase in inbound traffic f…

Is There Room for Impulse in Business Decision-Making?

If you have a pulse, at some point you have done something on impulse. Recently, tennis player Svetlana Kuznetsova cut her hair during a match before returning and winning the match. I don't know the details surrounding the emergency haircut, but definitely looked like an impulsive decision at its finest.



In art and sports, spontaneity and split-second decison-making are often encouraged. In the business world, not so much. If you are starting a business, own a business, or even work in a business --you probably have plenty of cautionary tales of impulsive decisions gone wrong. The six-figure-earning account executive who got into a fist fight with a co-worker, the business owner who built an expense around money not yet earned, the employee who leaves a passive-ag…
