Are you passionate about your product or service? Do you KNOW that people can benefit from what you have to offer? I’m sure the answer is yes. And if the answer is yes, then why are you short-changing yourself? So many women entrepreneurs are afraid to even charge for their services. And if they do charge, they are devaluing their services by charging nominal fees out of fear of thinking their prices are too high and nobody would ever buy. If this is you, then I can tell you right now that your business is probably not profitable or anywhere near where it should be considering the worth of your product. You are in business to make money, not to run a hobby…at least I hope!

Having a successful and profitable business starts with you believing in what you do and being able to look people square in the eye with confidence when you quote your prices. The worst position to be in when you have competitors is the “cheapest� in town. The best position is to be the highest priced, a concept many have a hard time wrapping their mind around. Many businesses have gone right OUT of business by trying to undercut their competitors prices thinking customers will flock to them because they are cheaper. While that may work for a minute, the success is short-lived and they quickly realize they cannot sustain running a business at cheap prices. I have seen it happen time and time again.

If people cannot afford you at the price point that you have set based on what you are delivering, the quality of your product or service and what makes you profitable, then they are NOT your target client or customer. Don’t adjust your price, adjust the target market you are marketing to. It’s just like anything else in life. If you go to a shoe store and cannot afford the Jimmy Choo shoes then what do you do? You settle for the Kenneth Coles. But you can best believe that Jimmy Choo is not going to lower his prices because you could not afford them, he is going to let them sit right there in the store until his target customer comes and buys them. He doesn’t care that you could not afford them, you are NOT his ideal client. And you have got to start thinking of your business in the same way.

And for those of you who have been giving your stuff away for nothing and “helping� people, it is time to stop. While we all like to give back and help out, rarely do people value anything you just give them because they have not invested their good hard earned resources and it is easy to blow off. But when people have “skin in the game� and make an investment, they are more apt to actually work so they can see a return on their investment. So giving it all away is really not helping anyone at all, now is it?

Value yourself. Value your skills, value what you have that can change someone’s life. If YOU don’t value your business, you can’t expect anyone else to.

Hi Vicki!

Thank you so much for this post! This principle is so simple, yet so easy to miss. I have fallen into this trap of undervaluing my time, products, and my services, my knowledge, and deferring to other people time and time again – sometimes without even realizing that I am doing it. This post spelled it out so simply. Stop giving discounts! – In any area of life. Thanks again. I am determined to get what I came for!

Blessings!

Vikki
