TEACHER TIP: Plenty of room to go around!
Have you ever said the following things, or at least thought them in your head?
“I feel bad charging ____.”
“Well, the client is already paying for _____.”
“_____ only charges X amount.”
“I only teach X amount of hours so why should I get a raise.”
If you’ve said any version of the above, then it’s time we have the $$$ talk! Are you operating under the belief that there is a finite amount of money to be had in this world? NEWS FLASH! There’s plenty of room to go around and more! Trust!
It doesn’t matter if you’re a full time barre teacher, or teach one class a week, because knowing your worth is important! And owning it is key! We live in a time where multiple revenue sources are more and more common and essential for living the lives we want to live, and to be able to provide for our families. I personally love having different work ventures and projects. It keeps my mind sharp and entertains my crazy brain!
SO however much you teach I know IT MATTERS! So when I need to shake up my beliefs around money I ask:
- What is the number that will get me out of bed?
- Is what I am charging match the extra work I am putting in?
- Is it time to charge more?
I have learned an exercise from my coach, which is to pick a $ amount and then everyday after double the amount for 30 days. Each day, write in a journal the amount of money and what you would do with that money. Day one I started out with $1,000 and my first purchase was to invest in new camera equipment. Go crazy, get creative and get used to envisioning more $$ in your life! What’s your first purchase??
