The easiest way to unlock your mental barrier to selling more or selling at a higher price is by thinking about money a little differently. You’ll need to listen to what is causing you to stop or feel uncomfortable when talking about money. Typically, this is caused by your parents or your upbringing.
You think you see money the right way, but, unless you’re thinking in terms of the buyer, the value you bring, and not limiting yourself to what you think you can make in your career, you might be missing out on how much you can actually make.
