Build that self-value, because the stronger you can build that then the more confident you are in valuing yourself in a business context. Laura Cook
Do you ever find yourself struggling to quote a new client, and the minute you go to say the new price…you suddenly cut it in half or offer them some crazy discount(!) all because you’re worried how they’ll feel about what you charge?
Well if you’ve ever struggled with doubt surrounding money in your business, then this interview is for you. My guest is money mindset mentor Laura Cook (No relation;) of LauraCook.com, who serves women entrepreneurs in their efforts to do their meaningful work with greater financial freedom and lesser financial anxiety.
I invited her by the podcast today to share her insights on some of the most common questions and challenges my community faces with regard to money and mindset:
- How can we move past fear and uncertainty regarding money?
- Why do we so often charge less for our work than what it’s worth?
- What can we do to become more confident about our products and services?
*Hint* If you can boost your confidence, your cash flow will follow.
Here are the topics Laura and I visit on our way to a better money mindset:
