🌟 Decoding Your Value: How Much Should I Charge: What am I worth?

Have you ever pondered the elusive question of aligning your skills with the compensation you deserve? You’re not alone. Recently, a listener reached out with a question that many grapple with: “How do I know what to charge?” Join me as we journey from uncertainty to clarity.

How Much Should I Charge: What am I worth? A Guide to Working it out

Imagine my early days—a performer navigating uncharted waters in the business realm. Despite a background in performance education, setting a price for my art was a puzzle. I was so thankful for the work as a performing artist that I didn’t want to ask about money, let alone charge what I was worth! It’s a challenge many of us face—undervaluing our skills despite years of training. Let’s unlock the secrets together.

💡 Shifting Mindset: From Uncertainty to Confidence

When I successfully navigated the challenges of launching my creative and coaching business, the key to overcoming the ‘what to charge’ hurdle was a transformative shift in my mindset. One crucial lesson I learned is that determining what to charge begins with cultivating a professional mindset. One example was transitioning from sporadic online social media postings to a purpose-driven strategy, marking a pivotal moment in my journey.

“Value your worth, for in charging for what you do, you not only define your worth but also summon the courage to embrace it.”

As a performing artist and entrepreneur, this professional mindset is the cornerstone of my approach. Whether I’m captivating audiences on stage or navigating the intricacies of business, the commitment to a professional mindset remains unwavering. In the realm of performance, it ensures each act is not just a display of skill but a deliberate expression of artistry.

Similarly, in the entrepreneurial sphere, this mindset propels me to approach challenges with resilience and strategic thinking. It’s about showing up consistently in the business arena and committing to excellence regardless of external factors. Whether under the spotlight or behind the scenes, the mindset of a dedicated professional is the driving force that fuels both my artistic endeavors and entrepreneurial ventures.

Consistency is paramount whether you’re an artist, entrepreneur, or creative professional. Approaching your work with intention, showing up consistently, and committing as a professional, regardless of mood or circumstances, is the foundation of lasting success. It’s not merely about acquiring skills; it’s about nurturing the mindset that propels you toward mastery.

🚀 Claiming Your Worth: A Journey in Self-Discovery

Beyond recognizing your worth, the true game-changer lies in boldly claiming it as your birthright. This journey isn’t just about understanding your value; it’s about making it unequivocally clear that compromising your worth is non-negotiable. Your passion and joy should seamlessly align with the compensation you receive.

Self-discovery in this process — plays a pivotal role in unveiling your actual value and setting prices that authentically reflect it. Embrace the transformational journey of recognizing, claiming, and unapologetically owning the worth you bring to the table.

“Taking your worth seriously becomes a beacon that guides others to recognize and honor the value you bring to the world.”
