#38 People pleasing and pricing with Natalie Lue
Are you guilty of people pleasing, perfectionism or overthinking? And how does that come across in your business and your pricing? You may not immediately think the two are connected, but the emotional baggage that causes your people-pleasing or perfectionist habits impacts on what you’re willing to settle for in business, especially with boundaries and pricing.
It’s an important topic and one I chat to Natalie Lue about for this podcast episode. Natalie is a recovering people pleaser herself, and in this episode she’s going to help you discover the emotional baggage behind those habits and give you some tips to put that baggage down, and set better prices, boundaries and standards in your business.
