Have you ever wondered what could happen if you released the money blocks that have been holding you back? The truth is, the potential is unlimited and the opportunities that might come to the surface may include things you could never have dreamed of! Karen's inspiring journey is a testament to this.
Meet Karen, a remarkable woman also known as "The Top Cat Tutor." In 2021, Karen faced a common challenge that many entrepreneurs encounter: the struggle to earn a sufficient income while grappling with limited time to work one-to-one with clients - as a primary school aged tutor the window to work with students was understandably limited. But Karen also had bills to pay. It wasn't just a matter of wanting to increase her prices; it was a necessity. Karen knew that if she didn't charge more, she couldn't sustain her business.
But Karen didn't take this challenge lightly. She didn't pluck a random price out of thin air and hope for the best. Instead, she embarked on a strategic journey to determine the right pricing strategy that would work for her, bring her the desired income and position her as the qualified professional that she is. This wasn't just about raising hourly rates; this was about finding a pricing structure that made sense, even if it was totally different from the industry norm.
Beyond pricing, Karen and I delved deep into her money blocks and fears. What if her current clients rejected the new pricing? What if she ended up worse off than before? Together, we set out a timeline for implementing these crucial changes in a way that felt right to Karen. With unwavering support, accountability, and reassurance from me and the community, Karen faced the challenges and doubts head-on.
Within just six months, Karen had successfully implemented her new pricing strategy. Goodbye low hourly rate that didn't reflect the true time, energy and expertise that goes into her tutoring. Hello, new monthly packages!
While some clients decided not to continue, the majority stayed on board, and Karen found herself not only in a better financial position, but with more time to spare. And the success story didn't stop there.
Within a year, Karen was fully booked and earning more than she had ever imagined. But the most exciting part was yet to come. Recognising that one-to-one work had its limitations, Karen began exploring other avenues for income generation. Some ideas felt right, while others didn't quite fit the bill. Then, the breakthrough happened.
Through the transformative mindset work she had undergone, Karen reached a point where she looked back at her old limiting beliefs in astonishment. This newfound perspective allowed her to spot these same limiting beliefs in other tutors within her industry. It became abundantly clear that there was a widespread issue in the tutoring industry that needed addressing.
With unwavering determination, Karen started developing a solution to this problem. Less than two years after she began her journey, Karen launched her course aimed at supporting other tutors with their money mindset and pricing strategies. Her transformation from struggling tutor to an industry innovator was nothing short of remarkable, and I feel very honoured to have been a part of her journey.
A message I received from Karen in March 20223.
Karen's story serves as a powerful example of the potential unleashed when strategic changes are combined with mindset transformation. Her journey from financial hardship to thriving success illustrates how breaking free from limiting beliefs can open doors to new opportunities in any industry. It's a reminder that the exact path to success is often unpredictable.
Karen's achievements stand as a testament to the incredible results that can be achieved by being an active and engaged member of a supportive community, such as "The Mindset Place" (formerly known as "The Bubble"). Her story is an inspiration for anyone looking to achieve their income goals and overcome their own money blocks. Karen's journey is a reminder that with the right mindset and support, you can achieve unlimited success in your chosen field.
