I shot this video for you

I’m delighted you’re interested in Journey to Confidence.

If you have any thoughts on what I’ve said do leave me a comment below.

And if you’re the sort of person who likes to read rather than watch videos, here’s the main points:

First, I’m really excited that you’re interested in Journey to Confidence. Many of you have written to me about how much you’re wanting a program like this and that you’re after a breakthrough in being able to speak up when you choose to.

Second, I want to tell you my thoughts around pricing for the program. I want the program to be affordable for anyone who is committed to doing it. You may be from a developing country and have less financial resources than someone from a developed country. I want you to be able to do the program irrespective of your financial resources.

At the same time, I think it’s important for everyone who does the program to pay something. The reason for this is that I want you to have a commitment, I want you to have some “skin in the game” as the colloquial expression goes. One of the ways that we show our commitment to something is by committing some money. At times, going through the program will be uncomfortable and having some financial commitment will help you keep going. So I want everyone to pay something!

I’m currently researching how to make this possible.

I’ll be sending you more information about the program soon.

    I really appreciate your desire to make this program accessible to everyone. Are you considering allowing participants to purchase a sponsorship for those who are less advantaged to take the program?

    I am in…I am tired of not being able to articulate what I need/want to say unless it is in a one-on-one environment.

    I am reaching retirement age but better late than never!

      Wow Bonnie, thank you. I had thought of saying something like ‘those who pay more, will make it possible for those who can only pay less’, I’ll give some thought to your suggestion.

      So glad that you’re in! And age is of no relevance on this issue – it’s never too late to step into your power and share what you have to offer.

    Dear Olivia,
    I am willing to contribute some money to the program of course, even though I don´t have much at the moment. I am retired, but still work on off in teacher training and now want to relocate to NZ and start in a Master of Disability and Inclusion Studies there. I am also in the process of applying for a job at the Uni as Disability Support Advisor. The cover letter ist my next challenge!

      Thank you Pauline, and we’ll get rid of the hoarseness, the tickle and the backward words!

    Eeeek I’m super excited but literally am scared of having to speak. I know there a fears and boundaries I need to break through and committing to this makes me very nervous but I know there will be skills, tricks and trainings that will make this possible.

    So nervous responding ?

    I completely agree with paying though, you are providing a service/skill that will make a difference to us.

    Thank you

      Yay – well done Marie for posting – that’s the first step on your journey.

      With that nervousness you’re feeling, it’s normal. Just allow it to be – what I mean by this, is don’t try and get rid of it (we often do this by distracting ourselves, eating, drinking etc). Just allow it to be in your body. Get curious about what it feels like – where is it in your body, is it hard or soft, if it had a color what color would it be?

      And see the feeling of nervousness as a sign that you’re doing something which is important to you, and which is part of your growth.

      Can’t wait to have you on the program :-).

      Olivia
