Default ♪♫ Raising My Rates ♪♫

I set up my new rate sheet starting September 1!!!

I am currently charging by the hour, but come September it will be by set number of days for the week.
5 Days - $200
4 Days - $180
3 Days - $150
2 Days - $110
1 Day - $60

And, no more letting late payments go without a late fee, either.

I am sure I will lose all families but my full timer (no rate change)

I have already terminated one family a couple of weeks ago for not showing up, bounced cheque, and various other little things. And, I'm having issues with another dcm for not showing up or calling for a week. I reminded her about the contract she signed.

The new rates will definitely be a change for them. They will have to pay for the full day when they come. No more fooling around with calculating hours. It's so time consuming and a hassle to keep track of. I love it... they will hate it.

I am secretly hoping they all quit and I can go get a job. I am really not liking the seclusion all day long... craving adult interaction big time.

Awesome about new rates!!! Is it possible to hire a PT assistant? I love when I have mine here for the 'adult conversation' factor. I have my DD in summer (not the same) and in fall, she comes on Fridays and cleans during nap and we talk while I do paperwork.

Having someone help can really help the isolation factor or meeting up with other providers and their groups!

Yay for raising your rates! Go you!

I hear you on the isolation feeling though! Somedays I want to talk DH's ear off but he's the oppposite because he works with a large crew of people and the public all day. I know its time for an evening with friends when I actually don't mind when my chatty dcm stays longer to chat

I have two assistants and since they started with me, my life feels better. I am happier during the day. I am also less stressed, tired, overworked and I don't feel like I have lost brain cells anymore....
