How much is your time worth?
It is true that “time is money.” Yet, it is probably safe to say that time is worth far more than money especially after you work through the formulas in this workbook and determine your minimum base fee.
This 68-page workbook –Setting Your Fees will help you understand the difference between working harder and working smarter! It’s your business, it’s your time, so learn how to make them profitable.
Think about these statements…
› Being self-employed is not just about running a business; it is a way of thinking. This is territory where there are no benefits or retirement plans built into a weekly paycheck. There are no time clocks or afternoon breaks. It is up to you, the business owner, to set your schedule, conserve your energy, and insure that your efforts are financially feasible.
› Successful entrepreneurs understand the importance of a fee schedule that ensures survival and growth. A financially successful business brings in maximum revenue to sustain you and your business.
› Are you financially successful or working as hard as you can yet unable to increase the profit margin? Have you written yourself a salary check lately?
› Have you thought about charging more for your services but not sure what your education, experience, time are worth?
› Do you speculate that your competition may be charging more than you charge? Does that mean they are successful?
› Are you timid about your fees when you are talking with potential clients, or are you confident that you are worth every penny you charge?
› Do you think that a potential client might be unable to pay for your services so you bid low because you don’t want to lose the job?
If you are nodding your head in agreement with some or all of these statements, then you have come to the right place to learn how you, too, can enjoy a financially successful business.
Today is the day to get started on the process of establishing a fee structure that will cover all expenses including your salary and ensure a residual amount for business growth.
