Just received a late newsletter from Stuart Knight...
That letter just hit on the perfect spot...
Definitely life is full of signs,
we just must be open to listen to them!
Hey there everyone,
Sorry for the late newsletter this week.Stuart
I've been swamped withc orporate speaking engagements, but here I am with a very quick thought for you.
As usual, if you like what you read, feel free to pass it on to someone who will get something from it.
I bumped into an old friend this week who I haven't seen for quite a few years.
As we were talking, she was telling me that she now designs purses for the high end market of New York City. As we were talking we moved into the subject of how much she should charge for her bags.
I have to say that I was blown away to find out that her purses come at a price anywhere from $350 to $1200 for a purse. Being a man, although I knew there was a market that would pay this amount for purses, I was still taken back.
This conversation moved into us talking about how much I charge for tickets to my shows, to my workshops and how much I charge for my keynote speaking engagements.
And as we were talking about this, we both realized that when you are an entrepreneur you have no other choice but to charge the amount that you are worth. If you don't, people will react in one of two ways.
The first is they will gladly take advantage of you and pay the lower amount or secondly they will see your product or service at a lower value and won't buy at all.
And as we came to this understanding, I realized that this is true for all of us whether you are an entrepreneur or not.
We all have to demand the amount that we are worth.
If we don't demand it, people will either gladly take us at a "lower fee" or not see our true worth and then avoid us all together.
What are you worth when it comes to your love life,
to your job,
with your friendships,
in your living situation,
with your health,
your level of adventure
and with your family?
What do you deserve?
As an entrepreneur with twelve years of full time experience I can tell you that you will always get what you ask for.
So ask for it and get it!
You deserve it.
It took me a long time to ask for what I deserve and now that I do, I only wish that I asked for it sooner.
