Episode Notes

Marika and I discuss:

  • What prompted her to revisit her pricing model from hourly 1:1 sessions to packaged pricing?

  • The next step to solve the resentment that occurs when we OT's give away our time for free

  • What did Marika use to charge hourly and what is she pricing her packages now?

  • Does every Enneagram 2 avoid conflict? (And, do we get scared to open potentially scary emails? )

Trish Williams

Hey there! I’m Trish.

I'm a warm, outspoken, driven Canadian OT turned business coach with a passion for helping other OT entrepreneurs build a profitable and lasting business. I have been an OT for 27 years and built two successful businesses. My #1 goal is to lay it all on the table to empower you with the tools and resources you need. I spent years as an entrepreneur working IN my business instead of ON my business, and I now know (and can share!) the benefits of truly embodying a CEO lifestyle. I’ve done a lot of growing (and it never truly ends) and unlocked keys to success in business and in life.

In a distinctly OT way.
