3 Ways To Say No To People Who Want To Pick Your Brain

Oh sweet, sweet, mother of pasta!

I’m 2 days away from heading off to Italy for a looooong overdue vacation. This trip is something I’ve dreamed about for years and we finally got our acts together to make it happen.

That means I’ve been waaaay more productive than ever to get everything done so I can totally unplug while we’re away.

Which brings me to today’s brand new episode of MarieTV.

c. And, if you did, you’d wanna get paid for it!

Marianne Williamson: On Work, Money and Miracles

Have you ever been in a really tough spot in your life and a book practically saves you?

Years ago, when I broke off an engagement and found myself struggling to grow my new business, one woman’s words made all the difference to me.

Her book was a real turning point — and I’ll never forget it.

Little did I know that a few years later, I’d have the chance to thank her personally for writing what was one of the most important books in my life, A Return To Love.

While I was in Los Angeles this winter, I had the honor of sitting down with the legendary author, Marianne Williamson to dive deep into her latest book — The Law of Divine Compensation. On Work, Money and Miracles.

Problem Client: How To Protect Yourself From Clients Who Refuse To Pay

Question: have you ever been stiffed? I sincerely hope the answer to that question is no, but the sad reality is . . .

Nearly all of us have been cheated out of money.

The worst is when you’ve been stiffed by your clients. It can feel downright depressing when you work hard to deliver an outstanding product or a service, and then you get burned.

After all, you were operating on good faith and assumed that your clients would be honorable and honest!

The worst part here is that we have no one to blame but ourselves. (Ouch!)

Look, I’ll be the first to admit that I learned this lesson the hard and expensive way.

I’m a very trusting person with a huge heart, and over the years I’ve been stiffed out of tens of thousands of dollars.

Not to mention all the time and energy I lost beating myself up for being naive or trying to get people to just honor their agreements and pay for what they received.

The good news is that I’ve realized there are a few simple things you can do to protect yourself and keep your energy where it belongs: on delivering value to honest customers, making a difference and enjoying an amazing life.
