Do you value yourself, your time and your work, to its full deserving potential?
Self-worth equals net-worth. Do you charge the way you should be for your products, services, and contribution to society?
In this episode, I share the story of our vegan restaurant. When we let go of the guilt of “affordability” and started to value our foods, specialty products and services properly, it helped us grow and gain more support and appreciation. This enabled us to do significantly more to further the cause we set out to support in the first place.
Though the story focuses on conscious entrepreneurship, it’s just as applicable to artists, professionals and anyone at all who is earning money. Value your offerings, and others will value them too.
I’ve spoken about my restaurant, Carrots on this episode. Carrots is India’s first vegan restaurant, founded in February 2013. None of the owners had prior experience in the food industry before starting this place, it was started out of pure passion. To break myths surrounding vegan food in the world.
Running this business has given us the opportunity to learn so much on the job! So, many of the anecdotes I share on my podcast feature Carrots in them.
“As a business, if you go out of your way to make things affordable, at the risk of devaluing yourself and your work, you’re doing a disservice to yourself. To your business, to the people who work for you. To everyone who puts in the effort to make that conscious entrepreneurship, really successful.”Susmitha Veganosaurus – The Feel Good Factor
