Nicola and Judith debate this from Jim Rohn: “You don’t get paid for the hour, you get paid for the value you bring to the hour.”
In the Show…
Nicola’s enjoyed a busy social week with Greek Easter a week later than in the UK and then a second Christmas! The local turkey is conspicuous by his absence though. Judith’s caught up with the calls she missed during last week’s power cut. She talks about her learning from working with her low-carb clients, and working out what she does want in a home next time she puts down roots.
What’s Fuelled Their Fire?
Nicola’s 30 Day Challenge is going swimmingly, she’s loving it, the clients are getting great results and giving her wonderful feedback and testimonials which she’s finding very affirming. She’s reminded of the power of a simple system.
Judith’s done two Entrepreneur of the Day calls this week including one referral from Nicola, Jimmy the pastor from Seattle, Washington. Both will become clients of one sort of another in due course and meanwhile they’ve left glowing 5-star reviews on her Facebook Page.
Focus of the Week
If you don’t get paid for the hour but what you bring to it, how do you demonstrate the value of your time/talent, and how do you price and package your expertise so that it doesn’t come down to being devalued by an hourly rate? Nicola and Judith debate what they will and won’t pay for by the hour and at what price and then open up the debate to the wider issues, concluding that we are all weirdos when it comes to money.
Words of the Week
Nicola picks Live and Judith goes for Reviews.
Judith’s up to 124 books sold, all 52 blogfest posts are now published and she’s working her way through the newsletter spotlight features and the podcast readings and enjoying both a lot more this week. Nicola’s still working on getting her Facebook Ads account reinstated whilst at the same time feeling liberated from over-dependence on just the one social platform.
Who or What’s Impressed?
Nicola is impressed by both Minesh Bhindi and James Schramko and their respective passionate truthful use of Facebook Lives, giving rise to her choice of word of the week. And Judith rants about the gender pay gap and; like Sarah Montague, she is “incandescent with rage”. She introduces Nicola to the Women’s Equality Party via Sandi Toksvig’s article in The Guardian about the Adam Smith lecture she’d just given which takes the discussion still further into women’s unpaid labour.
