Billables & Self Image Both Up
The owner had been running a small building business and just getting by with a salary. He was living in West Auckland and working mostly in Eastern Suburbs. Delivering excellent quality and service, in a timely way. But not charging enough for it. His self- esteem, self-worth and self-belief were low, compared to his ability and delivery.
Jerome recognised all the discipline, learning, personal development and growth the owner had done. And helped him reframe the way he saw himself, in his life and his working environment. The owner was vulnerable and open to doing the work. He took on the challenge with a passion and created a new self-image, self-beliefs and an inspiringly confident way of being. This resulted in a completely upgraded way of operating his business in a remarkably short time.
Now, the owner is more assertive, so, he doesn’t get much push-back from anyone. He still delivers quality and excellence. But now, he charges top dollar for every hour, and material, and service. He even charges the same for materials supplied by the client! And they are happy to pay! Why? Because, they know he delivers quality.
The owner says, “I was being too nice. Jerome showed me how to cut out the nice. The rest evolves by itself. When we focus only on the positive parts of our personality, the rest shrivels away even in a couple of weeks. Now I’m gearing up for overdrive.” He is well on the way to rich and happy!
