How to know what you’re work is really worth

You would like it if owning your own business was actually synonymous with making a good income.  I mean, isn’t that why  people start businesses in the first place?  To set their own rules, build their own dreams, and make more money?! 

But herein lies the problem:

  You know you’re not charging enough… 

  You know you’re going to need to charge more if you want this to last… 

  What you don’t know is whether or not anyone would ever actually pay the prices you should be charging… 


I think Sarah sums it up perfectly…  “I know how much I want/need to charge, but I struggle and worry if my work is ‘good enough’ for my prices. I am not a famous celebrity photographer and honestly wonder if my work is worth more than shoot and burn photography. Please Help!”


Today’s episode is dedicated to helping you see past what you’re not and on to what you are

If you truly want to know you’re worth it?  Invest in you.  Work and practice and learn – and practice some more – until you can confidently say that you know you can produce stunning imagery every time.  And secretly… I hope you never actually get there… at least not all the way… that way you will always have the fire to keep improving your craft.

    Are you sure you don’t want to be a children’s entertainer? My 6 year old son ignores me when I watch your videos, until the bloopers come on. Then, he runs in from the other room! Often, he makes me play them over for my husband, because “they are SO funny!”
