Q1: As business owners, why is it important to have money conversations with your potential clients and customers?
A: As a business owner, you must be sure to set the same expectations and agreements regarding your transactions to avoid conflict and loss of money later. You need to set a confident mindset that your business and services are valuable.
Q2: In your experience, what's the biggest challenge you see entrepreneurs facing when it comes to talking about money with their clients and potential clients?
A: Don't put money in the driver's seat by saying whatever is necessary to get the client. Understanding your value is based off your costs and profits.
Q3: Why can it feel to a business owner that they are working all of the time and there's not enough money coming in the door?
A: Entrepreneurs cannot forget to pay themselves. Don't forget to pay yourself, don't forget about taxes, and don't put paying yourself last. 80% of your production comes out of 20% of your people, so focus on the inner circle that is leading you to profits.
Q4: What are some of the different ways entrepreneurs can price their services and how does the entrepreneur know which one of them is right for them?
A: The most common rate is per hour. Value-based packages are monthly and retainers are annual rates over time.
Q5: How does one know how much to price for his or her services?
A: User all three methods. Work with a flat-rate baseline first. Then, while "cleaning up" what you're working with, charge per hour for total hours with a refund or extra payment after. Then, use a value-based package, where you can charge more than per hour.
