Transcript of this episode:
What’s up, tribe? Welcome to The Big Vision Show. My name is Max Simon and this show is all about you taking your big vision and turning it into a living, breathing reality right now…which means it’s time to get out of your own way and get yourself into action.
Today’s question comes from Jacklyn, hi Jacklyn! And she asks, “How do you go from free—like giving away free advice—to getting paid for giving away that advice?”
It’s a great question because it happens all the time. You know, it’s like—somebody asks for help, and you give it to them. And somebody else asks for help, and you give it to them. And the landlord comes to ask for rent, and you just don’t got it.
Or maybe you’re talking to that person and you know you can help them, but you can’t quite muster up the energy to invite them to invest in what you do.
So I know I want you to know, Jacklyn, this is a humungous wide spread problem that a lot of people deal with, so you’re not alone. Here you go buddy, I didn’t ask to get paid today, so all you get is one little morsel.
But there are some very simple ways that you can overcome this nasty little insecurity bug that prevents you from asking for and getting what you’re really worth.
The Big Vision Idea is people listen to free, but they take action when they invest. So here’s the deal, there’s so much free information—free advice out there—kind of like I’m doing right now….am I doing that right now?
People are always willing to like pay attention to it…hello? Anybody paying attention out there in free land? Have you ever noticed that people don’t do much with that free information? Heck, you probably don’t do much with that free information.
So there’s three things that you can do. Number one—realize that the commitment creates the transformation. See, here’s the thing—the moment somebody invests in your programs or your services, they are now declaring that they are committed to getting the outcome and experience that transformation themselves.
Because the truth is, you can’t do the work for them. You can only guide them in the right direction. So when you stand for them making an investment in their transformation, you’re essentially standing for them making a commitment to the outcome that they most want to achieve.
Number two—understand the cost of inaction. So when somebody doesn’t invest in your product, program, or service, really get what happens to their life as a result of not getting that help. So if you help people grow their business, what happens if they don’t?
They have struggle to pay their bills, they can’t afford to go on vacations with their family, they feel like they can’t get their purpose out in the world. And the cost of that should hurt you as much as it hurts them…which will give you that motivation and that fuel to really stand for people, making an investment in their own transformation.
So the third way to move away from free into paid is to begin having these enrollment conversations right away. Start talking to people about money, start talking to people about investing in your programs—because in the beginning, it is most certainly challenging.
But like anything, the more frequently you talk to people about investing in your programs and services, the easier and easier it gets. Hey, buy my stuff! So, stop pushing it to the side, stop postponing and start having those dialogues right now.
So thanks for watching—this is the second edition of The Big Vision Show. I hope you loved it.
