Can we cut the BS?
Seriously. I see a lot people posing. On their Instagram or Twitter, spouting a bunch of koombaya, “we’re all in this together” nonsense.
We all want ours.
I had a weird dichotomy growing up. I literally lived in a trailer home. And not one of these fancy, clean double-wides. An old, dirty, mice-infested single-wide. I wore clothes with holes in them. I was a poor, dirty river rat.
I went to a private high school.
With a bunch of kids who were, at a minimum, middle-class. Many came from the wealthiest families in town. So, my childhood wasn’t me wondering how “the other half” lived. It was watching it… first-hand.
Wishing it was me.
When my dad and I got in a car accident (that paralyzed him for two weeks) and our family was literally on the edge of starvation… some local families donated food and clothes to us. Guess what happened when I wore some of those clothes to school?
One of the kids came up to me and said:
“Nice shirt. It used to be mine.”
And, ran off laughing at me.
Meanwhile, my dad is in the hospital having to re-learn how to write, eat and walk because he lost all his muscle memory — and it had literally been days since I had anything to eat.
So, you can spare me the pretending.
I want mine.
I’m not going to do anything shady. I’m not going to be unethical or steal from people. But, I’m not going to pretend like I’m not trying to extract every last dollar I reasonably can from my clients.
More than that…
It’s about getting what you deserve.
What you’re worth.
Can we stop pretending that we don’t secretly want that?
Along those lines, I just uploaded my master plan for doing just that to my mobile app. 13 different techniques I’ve learned over the years to increase the perceived value of your services so you can charge exorbitant fees.
Make the moolah you actually WANT to make.
And, get what you deserve.
Instead of your clients throwing a couple pennies your way…
And expecting you to be happy.
Anyway, it’s a free training you can get inside my mobile app here:
If you have the app, that’ll take you straight in. If you don’t, that’ll walk you through the registration and then take you to the video.
