My mind is a constant state of "the mouse running on the wheel." I am always thinking, creating, observing my surroundings, being aware of what is going on; it never shuts off. As my niece said, “I am motion.” While she was talking about her 2 year old self, this statement represents me as well. That constant state of movement is figuring out what I can do to be better. We are all a continuous work in progress. While we can not change other people, we can change ourselves, it is truly a matter of owning our own junk and getting out of our own way.
My business strategist, Ken, and I have hour long conversations everyday about Brick Betty and those conversations always turn personal because Brick Betty is personal. One of the best pieces of advice Ken has ever given me was, “never be cheap.” I LOVE that statement! Yes, it goes along with the Brick Betty products, but it also speaks to every one of us in our own lives.
If you do not put forth your best, you won't get the best. There are no shortcuts in getting there, the train stops at every depot along the route.
Where is your bar set? Is it high? Low? Somewhere in the middle? If you are in the middle, you will have to move and there are only 2 places to go; up or down. Always choose up! Be expensive and know your worth. Never let anybody tell you that you are too expensive. If they do, it just means they need to up their game to be you are or want to be. When you price yourself too low, there is an automatic assumption by people about your value. My friend Jessica owns a jewelry company and I told her a while back to raise her prices...oddly enough, when she did, her sales increased.
