Ryleigh Klimenko Graphic: Should You Raise Your Prices

Hi, beautiful souls,

Today, I'm delving into a topic that's close to the heart of every entrepreneur: pricing. We're going to unpack a common question: Does raising your prices make your clients more co-dependent?

Not long ago, I found myself in the middle of a high vibe discussion with a group of incredible women entrepreneurs. We were exploring the nuances of pricing, but not just as a financial figure – as a profound statement of value and its impact on client relationships.

The Psychology of Pricing:
When you raise your prices, it’s about more than just increasing your income; it's about valuing your service and the transformation you provide. This decision can significantly influence how clients engage with your service.

Interestingly, I've observed something quite the opposite of co-dependency in my practice. Clients who invest in high-level services, like 1:1 mentorship with me, tend to be lower maintenance.


Because they are deeply focused on their business and personal growth. These clients are living their lives to the fullest – traveling, spending time with loved ones, and immersing themselves in experiences that enrich their lives.

Empowerment over Co-Dependency:
The goal in any client relationship should be empowerment, not co-dependency. When clients invest more, they're not just buying a service; they're committing to a transformation. They're more likely to take ownership of the process, engage actively, and strive for independence, using the tools and guidance you provide.

Elevating Service with Price:
Raising your prices isn't just about asking for more money; it’s about elevating the level of your service. It’s about enhancing the quality, enriching the resources you offer, and guiding your clients toward self-sufficiency and independence.

Creating Value, Not Dependence:
Our work, especially in service-based industries, should always aim to make clients self-reliant. Our services are a catalyst for their success, not a permanent fixture they can’t function without. In my experience, higher prices have fostered a greater sense of responsibility and commitment among clients, pushing them towards autonomy.

So what do you really think?
Does raising your prices lead to more co-dependent clients? From what I've seen, not at all. In fact, it can encourage a more proactive and self-sufficient attitude. Remember, your prices should mirror the value you provide and you get to own that value deep in your body.
