Have we killed the law of reciprocity in business? You know, that thing where you give stuff for free and people are supposed to want to trade up to your paid stuff?
Today’s episode of the Dare To Dream Bigger podcast is for you if you have ever worked your backside off creating a freebie or a free challenge or a free video training or even a whole free programme, hoping that the law of reciprocity will get people signing up for your paid stuff, but it didn’t work the way you were told it would:

I’d love to hear from you!
How do you feel about all of this? Is the law of reciprocity still working for you? As an individual? Do you feel obligation towards those who give you stuff for free? Is it working for your business?
Do you agree with me on what has been causing this? Are there other factors?
What kinds of things are you prepared to pay for these days? And what might you do differently in your business, so that being able to put food in your fridge AS WELL as change the world becomes a no-brainer for you?
Let me know, via the comments.
With love, Namaste,
