Most consultants get anxiety attacks when it comes to talking about money with potential clients.
While it is important for you to address your own underlying issues for why it is hard for you to ask for equitable compensation for your worth, have you considered the significance to YOUR client that you do ask for your worth?
If you are a consultant, you are a change agent. Your proposal reflects so much more than simply an offer for work in exchange for fees. It is in fact the moment of truth for a client who is considering making an important change. When you stand in and ask for your worth, you are not just putting yourself in a position to make money. You are providing your client an opportunity to put their money where their mouths are for something that have deemed important.
So, let me share with you why your client NEEDS you to ask for your worth:
If you struggle with determining how to set a price for your consulting services, don’t worry you are not alone. It’s a real challenge for those of us who get paid for our knowledge and insight to come up with the EXACT RIGHT AMOUNT TO CHARGE that both honors our expertise and is fair and reasonable to our clients.
To help you master the art and science of pricing consulting services, let me share with you 5 Guiding Principles:
Are you tired of the endless chase for small-paying consulting gigs? Are you so over those labor intensive projects that keep you as busy as you were when you were an employee? Do you want to stop under-valuing yourself through sub-contracting with other consultants and take your place as a sought-after advisor to the C-Suite?
Then you're going to love this tutorial video because it will reveal to what the true purpose is for the consultant's role and how to fulfill your potential in this role.
The truth is - becoming a sought-after advisor isn't a matter of luck or even talent. It's a consequence of an intentional positioning strategy, which I will explain to you in this video.

Are you working on a website (or know you need to) but are stuck because you can't seem to find the words for your copy that describes what you do and the value that you create?
Don't worry - you are not alone! Lots of super-smart consultants and coaches (who are new to business ownership AND who have been it for a while) have a hard time writing about themselves.
In this video tutorial, I'll show you how to get into writing flow so that you can finally launch your business, have a website that reflects the depth of what you bring the table and make money doing what what you love.

Have you ever wondered...
"What services do I offer my consulting clients? How to frame my products and services in such a way that they will be irresistible to executive clients?"
If so, you're gonna love today's training on how to design consulting offers...that convert.
I walk you through the general principles of what you need to include in an offer, how to position them to attract and land clients as well as how these principles uniquely apply to consulting and coaching businesses.
Creating great offers that will attract and impress your consulting clients starts with falling in love with your consulting clients and serving them to the best of your ability.

I'm going to share with you how you can create an amazing proposal. Instead of talking...
Do you have a consulting website?
For many consultants and coaches - both new and seasoned - they see their website as nothing more than an online brochure or resume. They believe myths such as "you can't find clients through your website" or "your website plays a small role in your business" and wind up leaving money and opportunity all over the table.
FACT: You can attract high-paying clients by virtue of your website. You can set it up to act as your 24/7 marketing machine.
FACT: Your website, particularly the content on your website, is the single best way to warm up potential clients and shape their thinking that you're not simply an extra pair of hands to do contract work but an expert and strategic advisor.
This tutorial will show you how to build a consulting website that makes you the obvious solution for your future client's most pressing problems.

Do you know who your ideal consulting client is?
Some people think of an ideal consulting client as someone who would simply be willing to buy their products and services.
Here's the thing: You can do decent work with a lot of different leaders. But you can do AMAZING transformative work with a select few who connect with you to the point that they don't just your products and services. They want your advice, guidance and strategic partnership.
Pinpointing your ideal client and joining the conversation that is inside their heads is the foundational key that will unlock your marketing effective, close rates, per contract and client fees, your client impact and the joy you experience in your business.
This tutorial will show you how to choose the ideal consulting client that represents your most profitable niche and deeply understand why they need a consultant just like you.
Betsy Jordyn: Today's quick win is all...
One of the biggest questions that keeps both new and seasoned consultants up at night is, "How do I get consulting clients?" The question that I wished that asked instead is "How do I predictably get consulting clients so I never had to ask this question EVER again?"
Forget one-off marketing tactics that give you hit or miss results. Instead building a marketing system that puts your client attraction on autopilot.
If you want a steady stream of right-fit consulting clients who are excited to work with you and are more than willing to pay you what you're worth, you can't rely fully on those tactics that require you to go out and FIND clients.
You also can't rely on finding referrals who will introduce you to that perfect client who will magically want to hire you as an advisor and pay you a good sum of money for that advice.
Instead you need a system that ATTRACTS high-paying executive...
Do you want more consulting clients? Of course you do.
Let me tell you one way that you're NOT going to get them: trying to be everything to everybody.
I know you have a lot of things you're great at and you don't want to have to choose between all the ways you can help your clients.
But here's the deal - you don't have to and you actually shouldn't.
A clear consulting brand and niche is not about picking a favorite methodology and getting known for that. In fact, that's a recipe for failure over the long-term as this approach will guarantee your market positioning as an "extra pair of hands" and "trading time for money" commodity.
A clear consulting brand and niche is about dialing into the client that is ideal for YOU. It's that client that you deeply care about helping that also wants and needs your ideas and approach to consulting. It's about filling your pipeline with the type of clients that you LOVE working with and who LOVE working with you (and...
