Raise Your Status = Raise Your Prices
Updated: Feb 19
If you are looking to dramatically grow your business this year, the fastest way to do it, is to start charging more for your work.
You know that I teach how to re-package your offers to at least triple your fees with complete integrity.
But today I want to talk with you about another huge part of your success as a high end coach: your positioning. Also knows as your reputation.
Have you ever noticed being the center of attention and feeling appreciated and celebrated in some tribes, and completely dismissed and misunderstood, in others?
This is why we often group with like-minded people.
It's not enough to be an expert, it's even more important to be in the right place at the right time. Don't you agree?!
Here is the key for successfully positioning yourself as the one and only solution to the problem your customers have.
Choose the right customer!
Customers, Context and Values.
Let's put your work into a bigger context.
Who are you really for your customers?
Are you a coach?
Are you a mentor?
What do you bring to the table?
If you are not getting paid your worth, it might happen, that you are not targeting the right people in your marketing.
All of your skills and talents can be wasted on somebody who doesn’t share your values.
You might be offering productivity or high performance tips to people who are happily content.
You might be pitching your money mindset course to people who don’t have to hustle for a living.
What about offering dating advice to women recovering from a bad divorce?
Not every single woman would pay for a relationship coach. Not every poor person wants to run a business. And not every dreamer or a seeker actually wants an answer.
Working with a wrong client can totally rob you off your confidence and spoil your track record of success. And in business, your reputation equals money.
You already know, respect is earned.
But… to actually to earn respect you would demonstrate your integrity to people who care.
Just being popular might actually damage your reputation.
Being selective is the key.

6 How does she/he fails her/himself
7 What does she/he needs, but doesn't know it
8 What does she/he believes she/he needs
9 What is her/his biggest obstacle

11 What would she/he pay any money to solve
12 What is the biggest reason behind all she/he does
Now answer the questions 3-12 for yourself.
Are you on the same page?
Why would your clients respect you if you don't share your values?
How can you communicate your values openly and clearly to attract the absolute right audience and fill up your programs with your ideal clients?
Watch my video as an example of inspiring the right audience by sharing my values unapologetically and attracting my ideal clients into my school. I signed up 3 premium clients after that 20 min presentation, without selling or offering any free consultations or resources from stage. When you share your values you are making a stand for your people. It is immensely attractive to your ideal clients, and positions you as the one and only solution to their problem.
PS Don’t compromise your values, it’s not worth it!
