Have you ever seen biz advice telling you to “stop trading time for dollars”?

This is an all-too-common refrain when it comes to pricing your services, but there’s something about this advice that misses the mark —

What does it actually MEAN?

Because while it may *sound* like good advice at first glance, there’s way more nuance needed when discussing pricing.

In this episode, we’re diving into the missing part of this conversation and what you really need to know about trading time for dollars.

There are lots of lessons on the path to being a successful business owner, aren’t there?

But if there’s one lesson that stands out the most is that there's no singularly “right” way to create the business we want. 


What works for me may not work for you, and that’s totally okay!

However, after nearly two decades of running a biz on my own, there ARE some lessons that I think everyone may benefit from.

That’s why in this episode, I’m sharing my own “secrets of success” from 17 years in business.

Maybe your offer isn’t quite right. Maybe you’re having a hard time selling it. Or maybe, you just don’t have the first clue where to begin. 

I know I’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way when it comes to strategy. 

And that’s why I’m super passionate about helping people learn how they can sell strategy effectively within their own business. 

In this episode, we’re digging into seven mistakes to watch for when selling strategy along with a lot of actionable takeaways for you.

Do you have a hill you’re willing to die on when it comes to your business?

For me, that hill is proposals. 

As someone who works with creatives and consultants, I see a lot of confusion about how to sell their services. 

Sales pages are great and all, but not for every service — especially when there are levels of customization involved. 

That’s why in this episode we’re going to talk about how to write better proposals in 2022 including what to include, what you may be missing, and the latest research on proposals that you should take into consideration.
