How do you price your value? What are the key factors when determining your worth, especially for my new and established entrepreneurs and freelancers? I’ve been asking myself these questions, as this is something I’ve recently been struggling with: putting a dollar amount on my worth. You never want to under or over sell yourself, but as my mom once told me “You can never overprice yourself.” What I mean is, I don't want to price my talents and services too low that I’m seemingly underestimating myself and diminishing my value, or price myself too high in which people won’t want to seek my services (staying away from cheap clients is a whole other topic that I won't even get into). But realistically speaking, who’s to determine how much I’m worth other than myself?
“You can’t please everyone, but you must also be reasonable,” I tell myself.
The answer is quite simple: KNOW YOUR WORTH! When you know what your talents are, and what you are capable of, others won’t question it. People will be beyond ready and willing to pay for your services at your rate because they know it'll be worth it. Be confident in your gift; I promise it will shine through. Demand that respect for sharing your craft with the world. Nobody else can do what you do, like you do.
For any entrepreneurs or freelancers that have some experience under their belts and are kind enough to spread knowledge, leave all gems in the comments please and thank you! We could all use some great advice. The working world wasn't built for people like us, and all we have is each other. Let's support one another!
