What Does Breaking the Time Barrier Mean?
Most freelancers and small business owners start their business by exchanging hours of their time for money.
We calculate how much we need to get paid, based on an hourly calculator, or by adding up how much we need to cover our bills. Well this method is completely wrong if you want to build a successful business, and still have a life!

Charging by the hour is literally crippling your business — my business! We need to change our mindsets and how we interact with our clients. Hourly pricing, flat fees and project based charging is out, value-based pricing is in.
Our clients and customers deserve to get the maximum value for their money, and we deserve to get paid based on the value we deliver. It’s a win-win for all parties involved.
According to the authors, selling hours for money actually creates a conflict of interest. Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book:
“The value of what I do is based on the impact I can have on my client’s business.”
“I’m the accumulation of all my skills and talents.”
“When you start off talking about price with a client, you’re putting your needs ahead of theirs.”
This short story will only take about 45 minutes to read, which you can do in one sitting. And trust me when I say, it will be time well-spent to change the way you do business.
