Do you truly believe you deserve to earn good–even fantastic–money in your business?
If your answer isn’t a resounding yes, you’re not alone.
Money–despite it being necessary for existence–is still a taboo topic and can feel uncomfortable for people to talk about, let alone make. At the end of the day, though, businesses require money to function–and so do you.
What if you could finally believe that you deserve to earn good money and reap the rewards of your labor (and all those late night espresso shots)?
Below, I’ve compiled five must-read reasons why you without-a-doubt deserve to make good money from your business:
1. You Bring Unique Value, Skills and Talents to the Market
You’ve heard it before, but allow me to reiterate: You bring a wildly unique perspective and swirl of skills, talents and resources to the market.
You literally have experiences, skills, thoughts and ideas nobody else could possibly have, which means the offers, coaching or content you bring into the world is 100% unique.
And not is it unique, it’s truly packed with value. Whenever you put out a new offer (or piece of value-laden free content), you’re not just giving your audience or clients the fifteen minutes you spent writing the post or three days you spent crafting the sales page. Think about everything that went into learning what you summed up in that snappy IG caption: 10+ years in the field? An MBA? Several thousand dollars’ worth of online courses in marketing and web development?
Remember that every time you create something new, you’re also bringing ALL of that well-earned expertise to the conversation. Just imagine how much money (and time!) your reader or client would have to spend to accumulate all the knowledge you already have (and probably just divulged in an Instagram post).
At the end of the day, your unique skills and expertise is worth a lot. And you deserve to be compensated for it.
2. You Solve Real Problems
Every single business solves a problem and yours is no different.
Your products and services provide your ideal clients with sought-after solutions they might not find otherwise. You literally help others improve their lives or get closer to their goals every single time they make a purchase from you.
That isn’t a responsibility to be taken lightly!
Don’t discount what your product or offer means to your ideal client, and the incredible benefits they see as a result. It’s worth something, and so are you.
3. When You Earn More, You Have More Control Over Your Life
Let’s be real: As far as we know, we only have this one life. And when you earn more money, you gain much greater control over this one life.
As a result, you can make more aligned choices and pursue opportunities you’re excited about–without being held back by money. You can also fully express yourself and do what you want to do with your precious time here on earth. And when you’re fully expressed and able to do things that bring you joy? You’re that much more pleasant and giving to others, too.
It also should be noted that earning more money can also drastically improve the quality of life for entrepreneurs and their families. From the very basics (like access to better healthcare, education, and housing) to increased opportunities for travel and leisure activities, more money generally means a better quality of life–and that is definitely something worth striving for.
4. You Can Give Back
It’s been proven that when women in particular make more, then give more. Translation? The more bacon you bring home, the better everybody in your community, family and social circle will eat. When you have resources at your disposal, you’re much more easily able to give back to your community and causes that are important to you. From donating to charities to volunteering your time (because you don’t have to spend it all trying to make more money just to live), money allows you to unabashedly support what you care about most. And who doesn’t want to do that with their time on earth?
5. You Can Make a Bigger Impact with Your Business
Obviously, making more money also benefits your business directly in many ways, too. When you have more cash at your disposal, you can invest in your business by hiring contractors and employees. You can invest in your future potential clients by creating new products or offers. And you can even touch more lives–by say, running a more expensive ad campaign so your message reaches the masses. The options are truly endless.
6. You Show Others What’s Possible
Last but certainly not least, one of the biggest benefits of following your dreams is that you pave the way for others to follow theirs.
When you start putting yourself out there in big ways, owning your message and charging what you’re worth, you instantly become a role model and inspiration. And the more money you make, the more you show the world and others like you what’s possible. It’s a total win-win!
