First, a free gift!

I agree to have my personal information transfered to AWeber ( more information )

Are you opposed to yourself? Are you attempting to set up a fight between who you want to be and who you are? There is no opposition. You are you. You’re on a journey, and every version of you is acceptable for where you are with what you know at that point in your journey. As Oprah Winfrey says: When you know better, you’ll do better. It’s not a fight. It’s progress.

Seth Godin has a great blog post today about opposition. It’s set out below:


The opposite of creativity is fear.

And fear’s enemy is creativity.

The opposite of yes is maybe.

Because maybe is non-definitive, and both yes and no give us closure and the chance to move ahead.

Perfect is the enemy of good.

Us is not the enemy of them. Us is the opposite of alone.

They can become us as soon as we permit it.

Everything is the opposite of okay. Everything can never be okay. Except when we permit it.

The right is not the opposite of the left. Each side has the chance to go up, which is precisely the opposite of down.

Dreams are not the opposite of reality. Dreams inform reality.

Is there anywhere in your life right now where fear is squashing your ability to create, or where you’re holding back on a yes or no for the fence-sitting ‘maybe’? Let go of the fence, and allow your dreams to inform your reality today.

    Yes, I am currently trying to work out my pricing for my author service. Am planning to work out all out into different packages with separate prices. My fear is that I will price myself too low or high.

    • Test the market and see what it will accept. Start out a little lower than you think that will be, but stress that it’s only for the first ‘x number’ of people. Then price where you’re comfortable for the people who come after that, when you have a few testimonials. I get paid a fair whack, but I undercharge for the experience that I have. The reason I do that is because I want to work with people who are at the point where they are just changing direction or about to step up, and the level where my coaching fees are a considered purchase for most people in that group. Sometimes, I get multi-millionaires hiring me, who laugh at me for charging so little, and often my clients end up charging more than me, because they’re not looking to work with the same people as I am. The key thing is, though, that I’m comfortable with what I’m charging. Set the fees where you are comfortable.
