EP 074 | Kimberley Seldon on How Committed Are You?


About this Episode

How committed are you? We usually think of commitment as a great quality, but what if you are committed to things/systems/procedures/behaviors that aren’t working effectively? It takes courage and drive to turn around when you know you’re going down a path that will never lead to success.
In this episode we learn:
– how a switch from a well-known behavior can be scary, but still worthwhile
– how to determine if you have too many clients
– when it’s time to take action
– how to notify clients of an impending fees increase

Take Aways

Kimberley is the fairy godmother that gives you permission to take a day off, raise your rates, say no to the wrong customer and leave work at 3 pm to get to your yoga class. Listen to her.
