Fair pricing is important for an honest business owner. The world focuses on how to get rich fast. When pricing we have to avoid the world’s view. I have noticed that certain terms or phrases can make us feel we are not at a good point in our business or where God wants us to be. The world uses terms or phrases such as “up level” and on a “higher level” to move forward fast but is that what Jesus teaches? Jesus treats everyone the same and we are already sons and daughters of the King of Kings. We are royalty regardless of the classification of the world. We will miss our current development if we constantly focus on levels or “moving up.”
I believe we move in phases and not levels. While we are waiting for the next phase of life God pulls the old roots out. God plants new seeds to grow…Godly seeds instead of worldly seed. It’s a great time to get to know or to get closer to Jesus. Plan and ask for your next steps like Nehemiah. Nehemiah 1:4 NIV- 4 “When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven.”
The Uplevel Mindset Impact On Money
We lose money when we pour it into purchases that promise to uplevel or move to the next level. Next level thinking also says you’re not earning enough or you should be further than what you are in this business. We are prompted to increase sales fast and we end up with less than ideal clients. God will move you when he’s ready. Are you focused on hearing God, on changing mindsets and perhaps business and personal development to move to the next phase?
Be Honest About Your Time and Workload
Be honest about what you can handle now while recording the vision for later. Enjoy your learning process. This process is going to strengthen your business, finances, and your heart for later when you do grow.
Don’t Chase Riches with Unfair Pricing
Price fairly not to get rich fast. I see many coaches charging 10K fees to people who can not afford the fee but they convince them their thinking is not big enough and they can help them get there. This is a ploy and usually, leaves the purchaser at a loss. Treat your clients better. 10K can be a future goal. But what will be a blessing to you and your clients now? Perhaps you can charge $500.00 for now. Will that meet your financial needs and goals? Ease into pricing and increase pricing every year.
He said, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Make sure you desire more than things but the “much” Luke 16:10 NIV. The “much” is heavenly riches, people, eternal life. If God can trust you to manage something small like the money, he will bring your ideal clients and more.
