  • Why you need to raise your rates
  • Start loving yourself as a method for success
  • You deserve to have what you want in your practice

Why you need to raise your rates

You have studied for years and you have completed extra training. You have experience with working with clients, with being supervised or supervising others.

You have lived experience and knowledge and empathy and the ability to create a safe space for others to heal – you need to assert what you are worth, and the value of what it is that you bring to the table.

Let’s talk about that self-love that we have to learn [and believe], “Listen, I’m worthy of this, I value this. I believe I deserve this”, right? [That] I love myself enough to … [do the difficult thing].

LaToya Smith 

Start loving yourself as a method for success

Why is it a struggle for you to schedule time for yourself? Why do you not feel deserving of that effort for yourself?

If you’re always anticipating the emotions of a parent [as a child] … you grow up learning body language, you grow up knowing what to say and learning people’s mannerisms … self-love [in that context] would be, “I don’t have to anticipate the emotions of somebody else. I have to uphold what it is that makes my business run”.

Mikah Miller

If you grew up being a people-pleaser, being a boss can be extremely triggering because sometimes you will have to say and do things that may not suit everyone for the sake of the business – and yourself.

Still, you must do these difficult things, and realize that someone’s emotional response to your clearly laid out boundaries is not your job to appease.

You deserve to have what you want in your practice

Love yourself enough to:

  • Know that you are worthy of success
  • Heal your inner child
  • Know that you deserve to have what you desire

Why haven’t you let go of the person who’s not good for the team? Love yourself enough to know that it’s okay. This is what you need to thrive and be a great owner. Love yourself enough to do the work on social media, or to pay for the course [that you need]. Love yourself enough to try.

LaToya Smith

You are with the effort that it takes to get yourself to the new, further places where you want to go. You are worth the investment of time, energy, and effort to love and develop, grow, and thrive.

Love yourself enough to try something new, accept change, and know that you are more than capable to try the things that you dream about achieving.
