Sometimes what we see our worth at, is what we get. It may have nothing to do with your skill set or knowledge. I was reading this article by Aaron Wall. He shows a bit of his personal side, but it was very good.
He talks about selling your services and it can really be applied to any business. Working for yourself, its hard to get that mentality of a big business owner who makes 6 figures a year over the “free-lancer” just keeping busy and keeping your bills paid. It is all a matter of perception. Everything is, no matter if you are the big corporate giant or the lonely freelancer. How do you market yourself? More important what is your self-worth? How much do you see yourself making? How valuable is your time for any project?
Aaron talks about changing your self esteem and your business can really take off. It doesnt matter who you are, we all have self esteem issues to work out. But having a good grip on those issues and taking charge can make you stand out from your competition.
Very nicely done Aaron.
