Know Your Worth

Know Your Worth

Hello, hello! I hope you’re feeling brave & proud this week. In order to put yourself out there in the way that it takes to be a small business owner, you gotta be brave. That doesn’t mean ‘perfect’, but it does entail saying (and meaning) ‘I belong here and I have something special to offer’. Sometimes we need an outside push to remind us that we belong. Today, that outside voice is Heather S. Saunders. Heather is a Senior Financial Advisor at Ameriprise Financial. ‘Know Your Worth’ is a topic for every gal who has honed her craft & created a pricing structure in order to offer that craft to others, because pricing is more than numbers on a page-- it's also a state of mind. Check out what Heather has to say about pricing for herself & her advice for other Babes out there.
