Episode 1: What Are You Really Making Per Hour?

Have you recently taken a look at your hours and your income and realized… “Hmm. That’s not quite adding up?”

I’d like to talk to you about productivity, efficiency, and making the most of your time as a business owner. As counterintuitive as it may seem, making more money doesn’t always depend on an increase in your rates. Sometimes, the correlation between the two is barely even there!

So what really makes the difference? What are the steps to achieving that bigger payday you’re striving for?

We’ll be getting into how to better organize your finances, how to adjust your billing practices to attract clients vs. discourage them with daunting numbers, and how to really set yourself and your business up for success.
