Welcome to the 30th edition of From V to You, a weekly letter of inspiration, tips, tricks, and behind-the-scenes of how I’m building a business around my personal brand so you can too. If you’ve missed the previous letters, you can always read them here. Special welcome and shoutout to my new Plexus family!


Happy Monday!

Can we have an honest conversation about something that is usually too taboo to talk about?

I want to talk about money 😱

We all want more of it, we’re curious how people make theirs, and we Google how much another person is worth. It’s always on our mind, but we’re too scared to ask someone how much they charge or make out of fear or worry we’ll offend.

Just this last week, I was on a phone call with a meeting planner who asked me to submit my speaking fee to her…

*oooo mannnnn*

I have ALWAYS struggled pricing myself. Literally always.

  • How do you do that?
  • How do you price you, your products, your services, your talent objectively?

I mean, I know what I’ve been paid before to speak on stage, but I don’t know this conference’s budget, and I don’t want to under or oversell myself. So, of course, I Googled to see if I could find anything because she refused to give me a range on the phone.

And then I saw a fellow speaker colleague on the conference roster. We’ve met once or twice before, so we’re not super close or anything, but I decided to ask her how much she charges the conference for a breakout session… yup I did.

We jumped on the call, I took a deep breath and asked her if it would be ok to talk about her fees and how to price my own. Not only was she ok with it, but we ended up having a full 30-minute dialogue about speaking fees in general, which conferences stiff their speakers, when women get paid less than men, etc. It was incredible, and we both felt relief from having the talk!

Which brings me to my next point…

Getting Paid For What You Already Know

That’s right.

I’m getting paid for what I know about marketing and branding.

I’m getting paid for the knowledge I have.

And I’m not the only one.

You know who else is getting paid for what they know???

My Mentors 🔽

tony robbins and dean graziosi

They have had enormous success and a life-changing impact on those they have shared their knowledge with. And I believe everyone has the ability to do the same thing.

How would it feel if you woke up every day and got to authentically make an impact on people’s lives in a whole new way, while at the same time achieving NEXT LEVEL success for yourself and your family?

Perks of being a Tony Robbins and Dean Graziosi speaker, two people I admire at the highest level, is that I know they’re going LIVE again (the only time this year) on Thursday, February 27th to share their proven strategies on how to use what you already know to tap into the exploding knowledge industry. 

They did this last year on April 30th, and it turned into a 24,000+ people movement. People who have changed their own life by changing other people’s lives. A movement that I’m a part of!

On Wednesday, I’ll be emailing you a link to register for this live virtual event, but for now, block out February 27th at 5pm PST! You are NOT going to want to miss this. 


Trust me on this. You WILL not want to miss this.

With so much love,
