Business of Burnout


Burnout is the ultimate crisis of self-esteem, so it’s easy to see how being in that state can have an impact on our business success. Taking money for our services can be especially difficult when self-esteem is low. In this session, we’ll talk about some of the major sources of burnout – the Dreaded “Shoulds” and the Warm Fuzzies – and how to get past them and back to functioning happily and effectively. We’ll then look at the many important intangibles that go into pricing ourselves and our services. We’ll discover that our clients are getting a lot more than they – or we – ever imagined. The burnout feeling that “I’m not worth much” can then be transformed into the thoughtful question “How much am I worth?”
