Do You Undercharge For Your Services?

by admin on 19/07/2017

One of the most common reasons I see for business owners (and women in particular) undercharging, failing to chase late payers  – and in some cases not charging AT ALL – is that they feel guilty ‘taking’ money from people who clearly need their help in one way or another.

As someone with a past steeped in debt – and poor personal money management in general – I can fully sympathise if you are. I get it. As a self-employed woman, you might not be sure where the next round of money will come from OR what other essential expenses will crop up in the […]

However you feel about it, money is absolutely central to everything we do nowadays. Just try to go a day without thinking about, talking about or handling money – it’s virtually impossible. To one extent or another, it affects our actions on a day-to-day basis – Where we go every day, how we get there, […]

Did you hear or feel conflict about money when growing up? It’s not uncommon at all – and the stories we grew up with can drastically affect our ability to create and keep money as we move through life. The way money was spoken about (or not) by our parents or grandparents when we were […]

It’s Not About The Money…

by admin on 05/12/2016

These 5 little words make up the sentence I hear every working day when speaking to women in business. At least once. “It’s Not About The Money…” Is that true for you? Is it really true? It took me a long time to admit it publicly but it’s definitely not true for me. If I’d […]

by admin on 11/11/2016

With the events of this last week seemingly affecting all the women I’m speaking with at the moment I couldn’t not mention it in this blog post. Don’t worry, I’m not about to start airing my own political views – to be perfectly honest, I’ve had a gut-full this week. In fact I think we’ve […]

become an expert

One of the things I hear over and over from self-employed women is that they know they need to specialise to really make a difference with their business, but they don’t know what to specialise in. Many women, particularly in service businesses, have so much knowledge and so many different ways they can help different […]

Have You Substantially Increased Your Income In The Last 12 Months?

June 19, 2016

If your income hasn’t substantially increased in the last 12 months, it may well be that you’re being sabotaged by your own boundaries. In other words, the boundaries you put in place to protect yourself and other people are quite possibly keeping you from creating the money you really want. “Eh”? I hear you ask! […]

Brading Assessment

Have you ever got talking to someone new and felt, after only a couple of meetings, like you’ve known them for years? Ever noticed how you naturally resonate with the characters from certain books, films or songs? As though their story is one you’ve somehow lived yourself? The same is true for your brand.

Is Negative Money Talk Rubbing Off On You?

May 14, 2016

Running a home-based business can be a lonely journey. Especially if your friends and family all have ‘normal’ jobs (as a huge Harry Potter fan, I like to call them ‘Muggles’!) When I started working for myself, I pretty much stopped talking about money to other people altogether. I didn’t want to get into a […]
