Do you worry that a price increase means you'll lose clients and enquiries will dry up?

Then I'd love to tell you about one particular Boss, who used to feel the same, but has totally turned her business and life around...

This Boss signed up for the calculator as she wanted to understand her worth and how to implement it in her business with her prices.

Before signing she was worried she wouldn’t believe what was being taught, and didn't think she could "justify a price rise and tha…

Think you need to creep your prices up slowly, so you don't scare clients off?

Check out Sarah's story, and see how she DOUBLED her prices, and was able to tick off a HUGE goal from her vision board...

Sarah signed up for the calculator to gain control over her business, as she didn’t know how to price her services to ensure she was running a profitable business. Plus, she needed help with boundaries and understanding how to connect with clients.

Feel like you're 'winging it' when it comes to your pricing?

Wish you could have help with it all, but you're worried about spending when money feels a little tight?

Then I'd love to share Charlotte's story, one of my 6k+ pricing calculator users...

Charlotte needed to understand why she was charging what she was charging. She was tired of just ‘winging’ her prices or charging what the salon down the road was charging. She felt like she needed to take control and learn about her busi…

Are You Surrounded By Bucket Crabs?

photo-1553659971-f01207815844
I bet loads of you have heard about the frog in a pan theory before, right? It’s grim but it’s basically if you had a pan of boiling water and put a frog in there, then the frog will jump out straight away but, if you were to put the frog into a pan of regular water, and bring it up to a boil… well, there’s a sticky end for the frog.

Have you heard about the crab in the bucket?

It’s a metaphor that describes a situation where individuals, often within a group, display a tendency to undermi…

Stop Paying Yourself Minimum Wage

photo-1579621970795-87facc2f976d
Taken from paydata.co.uk; “The aim of the minimum wage and
the national living wage is to give employees a fair pay, giving them more
disposable income to pump back into the economy. The general idea that the more
money a person earns the more satisfied they will be still rings true.”

This fair pay is decided by the government – the MINIMUM amount of money they can pay you per hour. A baseline to ensure that workers receive a fair wage.

But you’re paying yourself. And is what you’re pay…

Prada Vs Primark (And what we can learn from each, when it comes to business)

photo-1483985988355-763728e1935b
Yes, they both sell bags, but no, they are not created equal. Let's dive in...

The pricing of products and services, including bags (and even a loaf of bread!) can vary for a multitude of reasons, and the pricing strategies of different brands like Prada and Primark can be influenced by various factors.

But why should either of these brands justify their prices? You choose which you want to buy, and you buy it. At no point are your forced to purchase one or the other – you, the consumer, c…

Is your business boring? (And why that's not a bad thing)

photo-1598257006626-48b0c252070d

I talked about this on an IG live the other week, and I've been pondering on it even more since.

Do you ever feel like your business is boring? And if so, what do you tend to do next?

I've learned that one of my 'toxic traits' is that when things become a bit too easy, I have a tendency to go and faff about, break stuff, or go and make unnecessary changes to things that work perfectly well. 

But the truth is, a business that does what it's supposed to, will often feel boring (especially for m…

The Maths Wasn’t Mathing

Contrary to popular belief, I didn’t emerge from the womb knowing how to price perfectly. In fact, little 20 year old Maddi, who maxed out her credit card to pay for her training, had a pretty dreadful money mindset. 

I’d grown up in the North East, in a ‘broken home’ where money was scarce, and my clothes and toys were often hand-me-downs from my sister (who FYI, is 10 years older, so lots of 80’s shell suits and My Little Ponies that had seen better days).

There were ever-present money s…
