When you work for yourself, determining your worth is complex and can often feel rather lonely and isolating. For most, it can feel really uncomfortable to ask for a large amount of money for something you’ve created. Especially when your brand is yourself – like so many coaches, visual artists, freelancers, consultants, and creatives – it almost feels too personal to put a number on your services, like you’re judging yourself before others have a chance to judge you. Learn how to have the courage to OWN your worth!
It was less than a month after the birth of my second baby and I already knew we had to do something.
I needed this space and community as much as these other parents who were vocalizing their desires on social media. So instead of waiting for someone else to create it, we decided to build on this vision and open it ourselves. And that’s how The Makers Place™ was born (I say “born” because it now feels like my third child).
Each month, we feature a specific value that we highlight throughout the community for parents and their children through writing, art, workshops, action challenges, and more to help identify personal strengths, values, and goals. This blog is our public space to share about each value we explore as a community. We invite you to join our dialogue to deepen your personal reflection and practice!
