Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt afraid of raising your prices in fear that you’ll hear crickets…. *hand raised here* The number one question I get DAILY is “How do I know when it’s time to raise my prices and how do I do it?” Pricing can be tricky, but do you know what can be trickier? Your mind. Our mind talks us out of a lot of things and makes excuses for not following our intuition. In this episode, Allison Parker and I tal...

I recently polled my Instagram audience about why they find selling hard--maybe you’ll relate to some of their answers:
