This is especially important if you work for yourself. Charging what you are worth is often met with feeling bad or not worthy of your pay. If you are in the health and wellness field, you are most likely doing this work to help people feel better.
The first health coaching client I had, I gave them 3 months of free health coaching. I think it was a wise move because I was just starting out + learning what worked and what didn't. Even though I had spent $6,000 on my training at Institute for Integrative Nutrition and $4,000 on yoga training. Not to mention receiving a Bachelor's degree in Communication from Washington State University.
Somewhere along the way, I felt like I wasn't worthy of being paid.
That is SO not the case anymore. In fact, every 6 months, my rates increase because I find incredible value in my services.
Based on recent testimonials of programs and 1 on 1 health coaching sessions, people tell me they'd pay three times the amount I charge to receive this help.
If I want to be at the top of my game, be able to pay for my mortgage, health and life, I have to charge what I am worth. If you own your own biz, you have the opportunity to charge what you are worth - bottom line. The issue is not knowing how to determine your worth or getting hung up on the "unworthy train."
This year, I charged anywhere from $150-200 per hour for my private clients. For my teen clients, I charged $95.
Next year, my hourly rate will be $225 and my monthly 1 on 1's (1 x per week sessions) will be $800.
I decided that to devote myself 100% to these clients, I'd have to invest more of my time, effort and researching skills and I am worth more. The work does not stop the moment the session concludes. It it the beginning. The sessions notes contain hours of work post session.
Every month, I decide how many clients I am able to take on. I notice that with more clients, I am depleted. In 2016, I am going for quality, not quantity. Fewer clients, increased rates.
If you are suffering from ADD/ADHD, an eating disorder, weight loss, not able to love the body and mind you are in, struggling with anxiety and depression, you should call me.
I have suffered from the above, I've healed and now it's my job, my mission, my passion to help YOU heal.
Now, let me ask you again. Do you charge what you are worth?
