I’ve been reading some of the great stuff by British entrepreneur Dan Meredith, who likes to challenge the conventional way of doing things.

Here’s a cool idea for anyone who earns a living by giving advice, such as

  • Coaches
  • Mentors
  • Trainers
  • Lawyers
  • Accountants
  • Financial advisers
  • Web designers

We often get asked questions like:

  • Can I get your opinion on x?
  • Can you take a look at my new website/Facebook page/blogpost etc?
  • Can I pick your brains for a minute?

Dan says there’s a middle ground between pulling out your fee-table or rolling over and doing it for nothing.

Ask them to make a small donation to charity, or send them a link to your Amazon wish-list and let them decide what they think your time is worth.

I’m not judging you either way, but they’re both better options than doing it for free.


Because that which has no cost, has no value.

Plus, if you learn how to get your clients to pay for everything you do, that’s the first step to finally getting paid what you’re worth.

Thanks Dan!
