I remember when I first launched my first business as a copywriter years ago, I had no clue what to charge. Without putting hard thought into what type of results my work gave my clients, I started out with an hourly rate that didn’t scare ME! I would still even stutter when I said to clients, “My rate is si- si- si- sixty dollars an hour.”
Deep down, I wasn’t confident in myself, so of course I wouldn’t let myself charge more. And of course, as a result I attracted lame clients, worked like a dog, and stayed broke all the time.
Well, things are VERY different today! As just one example, I have no problem sharing that membership in the Diamond tier of my Millionaire Protege Club is $100,000 and Platinum is $18,000, and there is an intense application process. (And we just closed 2009 membership to both tiers as they are full to capacity!)
