I doubled the prices of my services. Here's what happened next.

Back in July I doubled the price of my web design services from $2,500 - $5,000. 

😯 Bold move, I know.

I proceeded to get asked a LOT of questions about how I mustered up the courage to do it, and what happened after. The most common question I received was, did doubling the prices tank the number of inquiries and bookings I was getting?

It's safe to say that my inbox has tried to take over my life, and I'm fighting back with all I have. (Know the struggle?)

I am an absolute 'inbox 0' type girl. When I have any number of unread emails over 0, I'm not satisfied until they're dealt with and gone.
