When is the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone to do something that improved your business?
In this week’s episode of the Educated VA podcast, I’m chatting with Faydra Koenig about building up your confidence so you can build a business on your terms.
Seems like just about every week we hear about yet another website or online merchant who has been hacked. The number one thing you can do to protect yourself? Use strong passwords.
But remembering them – especially when you have hundreds, like I do – can be a real pain. Enter my favorite password manager, Lastpass. It keeps all my passwords safe and secure, lets me share them with others, and did I mention it’s free?
How Confidence and Mindset Affect Your Business
I really enjoyed chatting with my special guest this week. Faydra Koenig is best known as America’s Divorce Coach, but very soon you’ll be able to find her sharing her life wisdom with a wider audience at www.DoingLifeWithFaydra.com (currently under construction).
In this episode, she and I had a great conversation about how your confidence level and attitude affects your business. She shared tips for:
- Stepping out of your comfort zone at live events
- Raising your rates
- Valuing your own skills
- Setting appropriate boundaries
- How to choose the right clients
Plus, we talked about the PITA fee. What it is, and when to use it.
This Week’s Business Building Resource
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of podcasts, and one of my favorites is Ed Gandia’s High Income Business Writing podcast. While his market is writers, he also shares marketing advice, thoughts on pricing your services, and many other topics that are of interest to anyone operating a small business.
