How to charge more than everyone else for what you do
Hey Workshoppers, I just recorded this quickly as it's a common question we get in our communities. I talk about: *How to calculate your day-rate *How to double your day-rate *This mindset makes you less money

@Jonathan Courtney this episode of REWORK on YT could be what you were referring to. "It's All a Judgment Call – REWORK podcast"
Workshop music for the easily overstimulated?
I understand the reasons behind using music in workshops. But as a person who is easily overstimulated by background noise, I am curious to know how this plays out in the workshop world for other sensitive people. It's a brain thing for me: In person, I have a hard time holding my part in a conversation when there is background music (or, worse, talk radio or TV or another conversation happening nearby). I can't listen to music while I work or I get too distracted. It's like my brain can't prioritize what it's hearing. For what it's worth, I don't have ADHD. I find myself zoning out when there is background music, or struggling to focus on what a speaker is saying (and yes, this is true for me with some of the AJ&Smart YouTube videos as well). I wonder if others have run into this, either as facilitators or with your workshop participants. I am open to using very low-level music during workshops, or specific parts of workshops, if I can find some that I can tolerate. I would love to hear your thoughts -- and your playlists, if you have curated anything specifically with this in mind.

This sounds like what you are experiencing is sometimes called the "Cocktail Party Effect". I can have some trouble with this as well.
📍Where is everyone from?📍
Hello Facilitators👋 I'm really curious about where everyone is from. I'd love to make this a mega post where we can see how diverse the Facilitator Club community is. Who knows, you might find a lot more people in your area than you thought! Once I have lots of answers on this post, I want to make a nice graph!

Personal Vision Boarding Workshop
Hi guys! I am new to facilitation and trying to squeeze in facilitation practice opportunities wherever possible. I'm currently a Salesforce Business Analyst (I work with Salesforce software. I don't work for Salesforce the company 😉). I just started leading an official Salesforce User Group for my area. Kind of like a Tech Meetup Group, but specifically for people who work with Salesforce Software. We will have in-person as well as virtual meetings that could be attended by anyone in the world. I can put a cap on the number of attendees for each event if I need to though. Since we are coming to the end of the year, I thought about having an event around celebrating our accomplishments from 2023 and mapping out our "Vision" for our lives and career for next year and into the future. Has anyone run a workshop around this theme and led participants to create "vision boards" etc.? If so, can you tell me what that looked like? How it worked? The people that come to the virtual meeting won't necessarily know each other, so I am not sure how comfortable people will feel being real/candid with their sharing. Any ideas for this? I suppose I could tell people that they can follow along on their own boards, if they don't feel comfortable working on a shared (visible to all) board.
My 5-Phase Roadmap to Mastering Facilitation 🌟 Share Your Thoughts!
Hey Facilitator Club Community! 👋 I'm excited to share my game plan for mastering the art of facilitation. I've broken down my journey into 5 major phases: from education to continuous improvement. I hope this checklist can serve as a useful roadmap for anyone looking to get serious about this craft. So here it is: 🌟 Igniter Phase: The Spark - ✅ Joined the Facilitator Club: Took the first step to get inspired, stay updated, and build my support system. This ignited my journey into the world of facilitation! 📚 Phase 1: Education and Skill Building - 📘 Read "Make Time" by Jake Knapp and John Zeratsky: Mastering balanced productivity. - 📘 Read "Design Sprint" by Jake Knapp: Foundational understanding of key methods. - 🎓 Join “Workshopper Master” by AJ&Smart: Comprehensive training! - ✏️ Compile a List of Exercises: My toolkit of facilitation techniques. 🤝 Phase 2: Practical Experience - 👫 Facilitate Workshops for Friends: Safe space for practice and real feedback. - 🎭 Conduct Mock Workshops: Solo or with volunteers for real-world practice. - 💼 Offer Free Workshops for Local Businesses: Testimonials and portfolio building! 🏆 Phase 3: Building Credibility - 📝 Document and Share Experiences: Blogging and/or vlogging my journey. - 📋 Compile a Portfolio: Case studies and testimonials. 💰 Phase 4: Monetizing and Scaling - 💼 Offer Paid Workshops: Start small, then scale up. - 📰 Publish Articles/Guides: Sharing my expertise. - 💌 Start a Mailing List: Regular insights and updates for my audience. 🔄 Phase 5: Continuous Improvement - 🎤 Attend Facilitation Conferences: Keeping up with industry trends. - 🧐 Peer Reviews: Get feedback from experienced facilitators. - 📚 Refresh Your Training: As tech and methods evolve, so should I. That's My Plan! 🙌 I believe that planning is half the battle won. With this checklist, I aim to hold myself accountable and track my progress. And hey, we're all in this journey together, so I'd love to hear your feedback, tips, or even your own goals. Let's help each other level up! 🚀

Have you been through the “How to Get Facilitation Clients” course? I have not yet, but I have a sense that maybe this plan could use more explicit emphasis on the funnel and building the mailing list—also starting the mailing earlier on. Just some thoughts. You laying these out really helps me think about what I need to do as well! Thank you, @Ömür Yanıkoğlu! I am similarly new to facilitation I like the way you think. Good luck! 🙌😊

@Ömür Yanıkoğlu as you can tell, I never wait to share until I feel like have a certain amount of experience. 😅 I just start sharing as soon as I have thoughts and ideas—but I make sure to emphasize that I am new. I of course have past experiences that inform the new things I am learning about being a freelance facilitator, so I feel like I always have things to offer could possibly be helpful. ☺️
