During a reading last week, a client said to me, "Ken, you need to raise your prices! I have no problem with paying you more! You deserve more." And I think we should address that!
Everyone wants to make more money, we all do. Me denying that would be a lie. Surely, I could even say, we would all like to have more money at the end of the month! However, what I do shouldn't be exclusively for people with expendable incomes. Rather, in my eyes, EVERYONE should be able to have a Tarot Reading with me.
Does this mean that I am lowering my prices? No way! But I would not be surprised if some money saving offers come in the near future. ;) For now, I like my prices exactly as they are!
So, how do I solve the issue of some clients feeling I deserve more? ANSWER: On your invoices, there is a place where I can open up a TIP line. Where you can determine how much more you feel the service was worth.
HOWEVER- you should NEVER feel any pressure to even acknowledge that line! A TIP is NOT expected of you! Again, feel no pressure about this. But I will say... when I do decide to raise my prices, the average amount from the TIP line will become the "norm."
If you are currently with me on a "Special Price," worry not!!! That is YOUR price and it will remain as such, until you say otherwise.
If I could live off of nothing and be happy, I totally would. But, that isn't the world in which I live. Mine is a world of nice shoes, shopping trips, nice dinners and clients who know I'm not cheating them. But instead, offering them the best price I can while giving the best readings I can.
