This is such a critical area for women entrepreneurs because money is an emotional currency for women. It is tied to our inner self-worth, of feeling that we deserve, and to our sense of safety and security.
In working with women entrepreneurs, I often find that women have difficulty charging for and getting paid for the value of their important work.
As a result, they are disappointed with what they earn, which affects their confidence and self-esteem. This can result in their inability to increase their income month-to-month, or consistently make below their targeted goal. Can you related? Is this happening to you?
The truth is that when you value your services, others will value them too.
Some entrepreneurs feel that they have to reduce their fees to get more clients, but if deep inside they don’t feel good about it, they are in effect cutting off the flow of money to them.
This is because there is an undercurrent of resentment or bad feelings that is now associated with their work. Plus this sends a message to their subconscious that they are not deserving. And so the cycle of frustration, lack, and fear is triggered.
A key way to honor your value and worth is to offer your work only to those who value it because then they are more likely to benefit from your services, use it for their highest good, and in turn help others. It’s the positive domino effect.
Bottom line, you deserve prosperity and abundance.
The key is to shift your energy away from focusing on money and lack, and instead focus on the value and transformation you’re creating for others who value what you do. Now that’s a winning combination!
