This is Season Four, Episode Seven. This is one of my most dangerous episodes, because I'm talking about shame. I'm talking about what Dr. Brene Brown calls "Unwanted Identities" and how they can impact your ability to charge higher rates for your work.

If you find yourself saying "I'm not (famous person), I could never charge THAT kind of money!" then this episode is for you.

This episode contains excerpts from my program, Overcoming Underearning for Creative Entrepreneurs. If you need additional support unpacking your stories of shame around your rates, consider joining us!
