Model on billing clients


Brooke, I’ve noticed that I feel uncomfortable if I prepare a client’s invoice and it feels “high”. I felt myself tense up today when sending a bill and this is the model I did. I would love your feedback:

C – sending invoices
T – the client will think the invoice is too high
F – a lack of confidence
A – I apply unnecessary discounts
R – I’m paid less than I should be for my work, I perpetuate a cycle of struggling to afford adding myself onto payroll.

C: sending invoices
T: my client will be happy to pay me for helping them
F: confident
A: I invoice for the full amount owed
R: I don’t create unnecessary stress for myself, I am paid for the work done, I become more confident.
