“Dirty, Sexy Money’ was Kimberley Seldon’s TOP 10 TIPS!

In my coaching practice one of the most often talked about issues is women entrepreneurs’ fear of charging what they are worth. Which is why Kimberley Seldon’s Talk ‘Dirty Sexy Money’ was so well attended!

Patti Kimberly Dana

Kimberley asked the stagers/decorators/designers/stylists to think about HOW they wanted to be perceived in the market place. She asked “Are you a Walmart brand or Hermes?”

These are her 10 TOP TIPS to comfortably and confidently charge what you are worth:

1. Focus on your expertise
2. Charge for your expertise
3. Charge for ALL your hours worked
4. Mark Up Trades Work
5. Share your discounts with your clients
6. Up Sell your services
7. Limit your suppliers
8. Focus your marketing
9. Limit exceptions to your rules & systems
10. Learn to say NO

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY – REMEMBER YOU ARE THE BOSS!!!

Colleen McClure Administrator & Proud owner of PRES Staging® - Expert Home Stager. When I was very young I began drawing interiors, it just came naturally. When I work with a client now, I see the finished project completed in my minds-eye as they explain how they would love to see their space created. I am able to provide sketches on the spot of their vision so this invokes client confidence and excitement for the project from the inception through to the brilliant manifestation – How Fun! When the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements, other passions led me to full-time work as a career counsellor. I very much enjoyed assisting people one-on-one to discover their own talents but this was an arena where I would develop effective techniques in workshop design and group facilitation as well. This would lead to a ‘happy marriage’ as I would apply these skills and passions when I purchased PRES Staging® - The Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. It’s truly the greatest joy to inspire others to discover and hone their innate talents – To witness their emerging confidence while coaching them on design principals and providing them the tools to start and run their own Home Décor businesses for Redesign and Staging. If you’ve ever thought you might enjoy this line of work, or even to do it for yourself and friends, get in touch – Let’s chat!
