Okay so this is going to be a quick one because I am in a massive rush today as I need to go to the dentist, I somehow managed to crack my tooth on a soft chewy sweet but that’s besides the point. Today I want to have a quick chat about keeping your integrity.
This is something that’s very important to do especially in business, see a lot of people get into business to make a quick buck and to make some quick money, this is a really bad practice in any business. When you become a ‘sell out’ and try to use your business to make quick money you lose the faith and trust of your customers.
Go for the long haul, get the trust of your clients and you will keep them forever, if you build a relationship with a client and offer them information or a service that is worth 5x what you are charging they will come back forever and once you have gained that relationship they will pay higher prices just because they trust you and know you will deliver high quality.
I have recently been listening and reading a lot of Jamie Alderton’s (GrenadeJay) book and Snapchat stories, he is brilliant and if you are into fitness or starting a business I highly recommend him, he warned he’s an ex British soldier so he tells it how it is and definitely doesn’t mince his words. He says that you should give people free content to get them interested in you and get it in their minds that you are the expert and you know what you are talking about and then when you offer your services make sure it is 5x more valuable to them than you are charging, for example when he recently did a seminar day he charged like just under 400 quid and he justified this saying if you followed his advice in your business you’d make that money back in a week.
Offer great value for money but DON’T undersell yourself, know how much your time and expertise is worth. I am in a big rush so I have to leave this one here, I will touch on this again soon and go into more detail so it’s easier to understand what I mean, but for now I will leave you with this:
“No matter how rich, cool, educated, or talented you believe you are, how you treat people ultimately tells all. Integrity is everything.”
Charge appropriately for what you are offering, please don’t become a sell out for a quick buck. Thank you for reading this post, i’d greatly appreciate it if you like it or comment letting me know your thoughts, I am really sorry that this is short and rushed, I am very short on time today so I had to get it done quickly. Follow me for posts like this twice a week, hope to see you guys next time. Ciao!
