How can you charge more as an interior designer?
That’s a fair question since I’m always talking about getting paid what you’re worth… so, let’s dive in.
The very first thing is that you need to know about getting paid more is – it’s an inside game.
That inside game means that you take full responsibility for your financial situation and become a willing partner in what’s going on (and in) your life.
So, if you tell me that you’re struggling with charging more because:
- There’s nobody in my town with any money to spend on design
- There are too many designers in my town and it’s too competitive
- I can’t get jobs or only get people who want to remodel the bottom floor of their house for $800
- Or it doesn’t matter because my husband makes plenty and I’m all good
That’s all well and fine, but it doesn’t do anything for your self-esteem or your business confidence.
And confidence is the number one piece needed for your success!
It comes from looking inside to see what’s really going on. Because all those excuses listed above are external, and the truth of how to charge, run a business and be a professional interior designer all starts within you.
When you start taking responsibility for yourself (totally, completely, and with no excuses), you can get clear on what’s keeping great jobs, clients, and money just out of reach.
When you do the inside work and shift just a couple of things… the doors of opportunity naturally start opening.
It’s a marvelous, marvelous thing!
