“There are a lot of business owners out there who are giving their stuff away for free because they don’t know enough about pricing. That was my story,” says Alexis Martin Neely, our next guest in The Price is Right Interview Series.
Alexis is a lawyer and founder of two million dollar businesses. She is also the author of Wear Clean Underwear: A fast, fun, friendly and essential guide to legal planning for busy parents.
After quitting her job as an employee in a prestigious law firm to set out on her own, Alexis learned the hard way how not to run her solo practice. From these good lessons, she developed a very effective way to price and structure services, which parlayed into a whole new business line teaching and coaching lawyers. Her current business, Family Wealth Institute serves both lawyers and small business owners.
In this interview, Alexis walks through some specific pricing structures for independent service professionals, as well as discusses her passionate views on charging what you are worth.

Thanks Pam for having a great guest. This is a terrific series. I am just working on a flat fee program for startups with another lawyer on her own and this was just what we needed. It answered some of our pricing dilemmas.
Thanks for featuring some very talented individuals in this series…I am going to have to go back and get a notepad and pen to write notes. Thanks, as always, for providing some great content and for helping us escape. Have a great weekend!
