trading time for money

Are you ready to stop trading your time for money? 

If you’ve been in the online space for a while, especially in the service industry, you’ve probably heard the term “trading time for money” more than once. And you likely have either learned how to stop trading time for money, or you want to. 

This comes up a lot in my conversations, so I thought I’d make a whole episode about it. And now feels like the perfect time as we’re approaching the end of the year and looking forward in our businesses. 

Here’s the hard truth: there is no quick fix for this. So let’s unpack it together. 

On Today’s Show You’ll Learn: 

  • The importance of doing what you love 
  • How to show up with joy 
  • The value of knowing your audience’s needs 
  • What so many courses lack
  • Why accountability is so important 
  • What you can learn from spending one-on-one time with your clients 
  • How to make sure you’re creating what people want, not what you think they need 

I want you to get clarity on what your audience really wants, before you spend time creating what you think they need. Just because it’s what you would have wanted, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s what they want. 

If you have questions from this episode or thoughts you want to share, come over The UpLevel Lounge Facebook group and start a conversation. I’d love to connect with you and hear your thoughts! 

If you are ready to learn how to create a strategy planning session offer that your dream clients will rave about, I encourage you to check out my Strategy Session Masterclass.  This will teach you exactly how to structure, create, and deliver an exceptional strategy session offer that will help you scale your business.
