I feel more confident in myself and less ashamed of asking for what I’m worth.
The other day I got a request from a client for a quote on a new project, and I quoted my new (and much higher) fees without blinking. She came back with a response that the price almost made her swallow her tongue (her exact words!) but that she knows I’m worth it…and for once I didn’t feel bad about the quote, second-guess myself or wonder if I “should have” quoted her less. My first thought was almost on the defensive, along the lines of justifying why the project is worth that rate. Before our session, I wouldn’t have been so quick to stand up for myself! I love Gwen’s energy and the way she brought issues to light without making me feel bad or as if she was judging me. I truly felt like she was there to help me, as a champion against the weaknesses that were holding me back!
