How to Overcome Undercharging and Burnout as a Woman Entrepreneur

As women entrepreneurs, our empathy often drives us to put others' needs before our own, sometimes to the detriment of our businesses and well-being. This pattern of undercharging for our services and overworking ourselves can lead to a vicious cycle known as "the churn." In this blog post, we'll explore why women entrepreneurs commonly fall into this trap and, most importantly, how to break free from it.

Picture this: you pour your heart and soul into your business, offering valuable services to your clients. Yet, when it comes to setting your fees, you hesitate. You worry about how your prices will impact your clients and whether you're truly worth what you want to charge. This hesitancy often results in undercharging, leaving you working tirelessly for little return—a phenomenon aptly named "the churn."

As women, we're often raised to be nurturing and accommodating, traits that serve us well in many aspects of life. However, in the business world, they can lead us to undervalue our worth. We're inclined to prioritize others' needs over our own, fearing that asserting our value will make us seem selfish or greedy. This mindset, coupled with societal expectations and imposter syndrome, creates the perfect storm for undercharging.

So, how do we break free from the churn and start charging what we're truly worth? It begins with a shift in mindset. We must recognize that our empathy and compassion are strengths, not weaknesses. We deserve to be compensated fairly for the value we provide.

Practical Strategies for Overcoming Undercharging:

  1. Know Your Worth: Take inventory of your skills, experience, and the results you deliver for your clients. Remind yourself of the value you bring to the table.
  2. Set Clear Boundaries: Establish boundaries around your time, energy, and pricing. Communicate these boundaries confidently with your clients.
  3. Practice Assertiveness: Don't shy away from discussing your fees with clients. Be transparent about your pricing and the value they'll receive in return.
  4. Value-Based Pricing: Shift your focus from charging by the hour to pricing based on the value you provide. 
  5. Surround Yourself with Support: Seek out mentors, peers, or coaches who can offer guidance and encouragement as you navigate pricing and business challenges.


Breaking free from the churn requires courage, self-awareness, and a willingness to prioritize your own well-being. As women entrepreneurs, we have the power to redefine our worth, set boundaries, and charge what we're truly deserving of. By embracing our value and asserting our worth, we not only elevate ourselves but also pave the way for future generations of women in business to thrive. It's time to break free from the churn and step boldly into our worth.
