EP 064 | It’s An Inside Job with Laura Martin Bovard – Part 2
June 11, 2018
Don’t think for a moment that your salary or income is the “extra” or it’s not as important as that of your higher earning spouse or partner. That is guaranteed to keep you playing small. “Fun money is more fun when there’s plenty of it.” Kimberley Seldon
Is it possible you are holding yourself back; playing small to avoid having to step up? It’s time to embrace your inner design warrior goddess.
In this episode we learn:
– not to automatically assume responsibility for every mistake
– how to ask situational questions at the client intake meeting
– to prepare clients in advance for anything that’s likely to be challenging
– that using third party stories can illustrate how easily projects can go off the rails, and how dedicated you are to making the situation right
– it’s ok to hit the pause button if a situation becomes heated
Brother vs. Brother on HGTV – Launched May 23, 2018.
Practice stepping away from heated conversations. When a client or trade raises his or her voice to you, don’t match the volume. Instead, ask for time to consider what is being said, accept responsibility for the situation if it’s your fault, assure the person you want to make the situation right and get yourself to a calm and safe space where you can think more effectively.
