How To Elevate Your Value?

Women Speakers Association is all about growing your value as a speaker and thought leader to inspire positive global change.

If you want others to value you, you must value yourself.
What you think of yourself matters. Have you thought about your value? Do you value yourself? You may be thinking, “Of course I value myself.” Let’s take a closer look what does it mean to value yourself. How you treat yourself is a great indication of how your value yourself. When you take on too many tasks or lack clarity on what you want and put others as a priority, you are not valuing yourself as much as others. Nonetheless, you may be feeling that you want to feel inspired, you want others to value you for your wisdom, expertise and general good nature and giving heart. And they should be valuing you. However, they won’t if you don’t. In fact, they can’t. You teach others how to treat you by your actions and responses.

On this April 18th WSA-TV Premier Show episode our guest experts share practical tips and concepts to consider that will help you grow your value. You’ll learn how to value yourself and you’ll even hear how to calcuate that value if you are a business person. And it’s not likely what you think.

Advice from our WSA Experts

We asked our featured guests to share some of their valuable wisdom with us.

Deborah says “Everything we acquire is with and through other people. It is important to create a good first impression and essential to create a great lasting impression.”

Wendy shares these steps “1. Know what you want/desire 2. What is your next best step? 3. Who do you know that can help you reach your ideal target?”

Shalanda advises us to “to take an honest look at their schedule. Many people say they don’t have time for the things they’d rather be doing, but carving out just 5-10 minutes a day to focus on just one goal can make a big difference. We can get a lot done in just 35 minutes to an hour.”

Michelle says “Own your value by getting clear about the impact you have in the lives of others personally and professionally. One of the biggest blocks women have around making more money is being willing to see how impactful they are. Consider and actually research what it would cost for your clients to not work with you.”
