“Switch it up, turn it around, seek that quality of life, spend more time with your family, spend more time in yourself doing the things that you love, be happy and joyful. And then the money, the luck, and the coincidence will happen. It’ll all fall right into your lap.” –Steven Kuhn

Don’t chase after money; let money chase you. A high quality life does not go after money as its priority. It goes after the good things and things will happen with a certainty. That’s what today’s episode highlights as an important value that each person must cultivate for a better life. For a fact, money is essential to be able to achieve something. But, could shifting the order really make a difference? Many people live by routinely earning money and forgetting to be truly alive, and the outcome is the same. A major turn around like this might stray from a conventional perspective. But, there’s no harm in starting that now through a different approach. Afterall, we do things so we can be happy in this life.

“There's often an opportunity for small adjustments to have a huge impact…. It's okay to start small and often, that will prove to be the biggest long term benefit, just the series of small changes over time.” –Travis Baird

 

If you work too hard, perhaps leaping big to achieve your goal, you’ll exhaust yourself in no time. Success is not instant nor is a race . Rather it’s a collection of the small paces that you take as you move on along the way. And as you take those steps, be ready for the boulders that may stop you- fears and burn out. Today’s podcast will help you on how to deal with them practically through simple and easy steps so you can be as productive as you can be, now and in the future.

“If you've got a dream… there is absolutely a way even if you can't see it yet, even if you can't see anybody else who's already done that yet. And the most important thing is to trust in that dream and trust that there is a way and keep that dream alive and stay open to the opportunities that you know you will be presented with every single day to lead you in the direction of that thing. So keep the belief and stay open.” – Bernadette Doyle

“Pay attention to what your prices are actually communicating towards people. Your prices speak with your customers, and they stir behavior, they can either be stirring them in a direction that is beneficial for both of you, or in the wrong direction.” –Janene Liston

Your pricing isn’t just about determining the right monetary value; it’s your identity. Leveraging your biz requires a profound consideration on how you place your prices. You will encounter countless struggles and challenges along your journey especially on pricing matters. You will come across various customer types that will challenge your resolve. This podcast reveals pricing strategies that premium entrepreneurs follow. It’s not about how high or how low you set them.
