Whether you’ve been in business a day or years, one of the things I know for sure is that you’ll need to have some tough conversations.
These tough conversations could be with a client, your team members, a team you’re in charge of leading, or fellow business owners.
Early on in my business journey I was making the transition from virtual assistant to online business manager (OBM). I had clients that I loved dearly but not all were ready or needed the services of an OBM at the time I was completing my certification.
Well ultimately it all went well, I spent literally months putting off and spinning my wheels having conversations with those owners – AND putting off serving the clients I was in the best position to help.
Examples of the tough conversations I’ve had over the years:
- Raising your prices
- Letting go of a client
- A team member not holding up their end of the contract
- Saying ‘No’ to a price hike – and more!
I can tell you from experience that tough conversations are never fun, but they do get easier with time.
In order to make them easier, I discuss some of my favorite strategies to use for overcoming the hurdle of tough conversations in my latest podcast episode which you can listen to here.
Speaking of experience, I have had so many business owners ask me, “Julie, what do I even say to ______ about ______?” Most business owners struggle with ways to even approach tough conversations and/or situations.
Because I’m a big fan of saving time, energy and stress I put together my most used emails from the past four years and bundled them just for you!
