507 – Pricing: They Are Not Paying You For An Hour of Your Time

In this episode, I share some thoughts about the mindset of what people are paying for when they hire you for an hour of one-on-one coaching and/or consulting. When people pay you (whatever amount), they are not paying for an hour of your time, they are paying for access to the years of experience, knowledge and wisdom that you bring to the table.

I hope that this episode will inspire you to create a document where you can begin to take an inventory of all the value that you bring to the table. As you continue to grow, learning and experiencing new things (Including Failure), you'll be able to add to this list, increasing the value that you have to offer others.

I explain why people actually want to pay you more money. Listen to this episode to learn seven ways that doubling your rates, overnight, will double your success.

505 – Live Event Planning


In this week's episode, I'm joined my great friend, Tim Schmoyer from VideoCreators.com.

Tim has been working on the plans for his own live event and invited me to lunch to talk about how things went with my Next Level Workshop this past weekend. He wanted to know what I sort of things that I did that went really well, what would I do differently, etc.

I figured that there might be some of you who will eventually host your own live events and that our conversation would be valuable if it were recorded. That is what you are getting in this episode. Two friends, who each operate a very successful online business, sharing ideas and thoughts about planning live events.

I hope you enjoy.
