    Pricing Your Product For Profit

    Let’s talk about financing. Many product-based startups don’t realize they are doing pricing wrong because they lack a process and they don’t know the true value of their products. Pricing is challenging especially in the ethical business space, leaving business owners with little to no profits but so much work to do.

    I’m here to walk you through a simple process to price your products right. There are a few numbers to consider, but I promise, you need to know these numbers to save yourself from the painful feeling of running your business to the ground. Aside from numbers, I also need you to take some self-reflection and ask honest questions about yourself. Let’s answer those questions and learn how to price your products for profit!

    5 Tips for Dealing with Comparison as a Founder

    5 Tips for Dealing with Comparison as a Founder

    This week is all about comparisons. Many times we find ourselves comparing what we have achieved so far with everyone else’s successes. That is something that is innate among us, which is only worsened by social media. Even in businesses, sometimes we can’t help but compare our brands with others, thinking about what's working for them and what’s not working for us.

    In this episode, I will share 5 tips to deal with comparisons. These tips are valuable for founders who are trying to grow their businesses while fighting against their tendency to compare. You see, comparisons are not bad, as long as they are fair comparisons. Once we realize that it is unfair for us to compare our Day 1 to someone else’s Day 100, we can now focus on what we can control, and that’s our vision and goals for ourselves.
