EPISODE 45: How To Get Over Your Fear of Getting The Pay That You Deserve

It’s time to look beyond the misconception that the price of your services or your products have to do with your value as a person or a being.

This week’s episode focuses on what’s keeping people from setting a rate/fee for their service or setting a price for their product that they deserve and how they can work to break it.

Key takeaways:

  • The common misconception is that the price of a service or product has to do with the value of the person offering it. Yet the truth is, the worth of a human being is completely irrelevant and autonomous to what he/she charges.
  • You are the universe. There’s no way to put a value on you.
  • When setting your rates, set them according to the market, and not according to your insecurities. Not even your ego.
  • Your worth as a human being has nothing to do with what you charge at all. From that standpoint, you can charge what you’d like to charge, and of course, live with the value.
  • A quick exercise to help you get over your hesitation in setting a rate that you deserve: Double the value of your actual rate, then double it again. Say that final value to yourself several times and declare that value when asked. Allow your mind to get comfortable with that rate. So when you make an increase from your original rate, however slight, it will be an action that will not surprise you.

EPISODE 44: Enhance Your Own Leadership Through The Leaders Who Inspire You

As a leader, knowing who other leaders inspire you is important. The ones who inspire you, emulate the values that are already inherent in you and to establish true leadership, you have to lead from your core convictions.

In this episode, learn a quick exercise on how you can collate the top leadership traits you are drawn to from other leaders and a few questions as well to guide you in adopting those traits.

Key takeaways:

  • Leaders face the truth. Therefore, when in need of change and action, they get real with themselves and with their environment.
  • Thereafter, they are able to make decisions that arise from something pure and honest, resulting to better outcomes.
  • Leaders are inspired by other leaders. They see leadership in others because there’s leadership in themselves.
  • Identify the traits of the leaders who inspire you and get real with the actions that you need to adopt and amplify those traits.
  • If you are able to identify inspiring traits from other leaders, then you yourself share the same traits. The challenge for you then is how you can amplify and strengthen those traits in you.

EPISODE 43: Actual Results vs Perceived Results: How To Manage Them To Improve Your Business

Are you and your business visible online? And if you are, are you making the most of the various platforms to direct more clients your way? And it’s not just that. Presence and visibility needs to be supported by the actual results of your work. How do you work on those two at the same time?

This episode tackles two leadership domains that you need to manage well: one is the Actual Results you achieve when serving your clients and the other is Perceived Results, which is how you are perceived by others. Listen in and start reinforcing your business’ strengths.

Key takeaways:

  • In managing your business, oftentimes, the focus is placed on getting or providing actual results (Actual Results). Yet to further improve your business, you should also consider your visibility in the industry (Perceived Results) which can create potential additional business for you.
  • Find out if you are being referred around and how often. Referrals are indicators of how others value the work you do and how useful you can be for others.
  • Engage with people as you work on delivering actual results and request testimonials from people who have been satisfied with your work. At any rate, most people who have experienced high satisfaction with your business will volunteer to provide testimonials for you. This supports your work by establishing your image and your business.
  • Learn from Tony Robbins. His visibility online (Perceived Results) are very high, therefore, if nobody knows him they can look him up online as he already exists as a high profile person.
  • If somebody’s never heard of you, increase and improve your online presence: work on increasing the number of your Twitter followers, Facebook followers/fans, number of Facebook likes, number of guest appearances on podcasts, providing free online content. All those things add up to being higher perceived results.

EPISODE 42: How Do You Pave The Way as The Leader of Your Business and Your People?

This episode is recorded from one of my talks on leadership. Leaders are meant to pave the way for the rest. As a CEO, that is your ultimate task. Both the brunt and rewards of your company’s performance are on your shoulders. How do you then clear the path and set the stage for your business and for your people?

Here’s a quick view on some of what’s discussed in this episode: The better way of taking responsibility, increase your profitability by increasing your confidence, find out my simple rule on how you can move your business forward through making a request/promise, why you should increase your empathy for yourself, why you should think weirder, not bigger. And why you should stop wasting time working on your weaknesses. (This is crazy, I know, but it works.) I hope this episode helps you out in affirming the leader within you.

Key takeaways:

  • You want to find more business opportunities? Think weirder.
  • Reconsider the things that don’t make sense. Just because it didn’t make sense in the past doesn’t mean they don’t make sense now to the future.
  • You’ve been told to go make your weaknesses stronger.
  • Challenge that and instead, get weaker in them. Get even crappier at what your weaknesses are. Just be don’t just be shit in, be absolute shit in it.
  • Identify what those weaknesses are and then identify your core strengths. And then every bit of energy that you have been spending trying to get better with your weaknesses? Give it up. Take that energy and put it towards your strengths and become exceptional in those.
  • Bring more empathy to you first, and ultimately, you’ll build a gentle company with a culture of kindness and connection a.k.a. love.
  • The number one component in sales is love. It transcends all the techniques. So why not build companies that are built on a foundation of love? The whole universe is based on love.

EPISODE 41: How to Establish Clarity Within You and With Your Message

As a leader, clarity is crucial to getting your message across and getting things done. Yet what if you are not getting any clarity within you and what you want in life, at all?

Check out the steps on how you can figure out and get clear on what’s clouding things for you.

Key takeaways:

  • Clarity is an act of omission. Too much information can overwhelm so if you’re trying to get your message clearer, say less.
  • If you are feeling unclear in yourself usually the driver of that is fear because when you’re clear then you are naturally inspired. And so as leaders, clarity creates inspiration naturally.
  • Make your choices from opportunity.
  • Imagine and consider the worst-case scenarios that will result from your choices and you will realize that your so-called fears are false evidence appearing real.
  • Oftentimes, people think that when there’s a lack of clarity you need to say, do and add more to the equation when actually you need to remove things. You need to take things out.
