Pay What You Want

white sails and blue skiesIn the fullness of time, when my own financial ship comes sailing into port, I plan to turn my entire business model over to PWYW – Pay What You Want.

This is a movement which is growing in popularity worldwide and it means everyone can afford to work with me as their coach/mentor whatever their current financial circumstances. And it also means that those doing well can decide what our work together is worth to them and reward me accordingly.

I already offer my ebooks on this basis and the experiment is one of absolute trust in total abundance and entirely in keeping with how I want to live my life.

I am going to start this week by making one business mentoring/personal coaching Skype session available each business day, Monday to Friday. It will be a moveable feast to fit in with the rest of my diary but I will publish each day on my Facebook Page the intended time schedule. If you have not already Liked my Facebook Page and this sounds like something you would like to be part of then do that here:

The combination of Skype for delivery and Paypal for donations facilitates my intention to work with a truly global audience.

Here’s how you might use your session with me:

  • As a sounding board
  • For a brainstorm
  • To explore new possibilities
  • To be heard and appreciated
  • To pick my brains
  • To take a breather in your life
  • To get some time to think and some perspective
  • Use me as your secret weapon, your ally
  • As a creative conversation which will bring forth new ideas when you are stuck
  • Insert your own here, whatever you like, honestly – it’ll be fun – it’s even great when you think you don’t know what you want to talk about, we can explore

Some clients who do not yet fully appreciate the Pay What You Want model have told me it is stressful trying to work out the price to pay. This might help. In the past I have received donations between £30 and £250. I expect those figures to go both lower and higher in this experiment. How do you donate to anything? Sometimes I sponsor people a tenner, sometimes £250. It all depends on how abundant I am feeling at the time. It’s Happy Money.

The secret on my end – and why I am totally cool with this PWYW thing – is for me to be equally happy with whatever you decide to donate. And I am. People pay between £1 and £20 for my ebooks when I offer them in this way. I am truly as happy with either end of the spectrum. If £1 is all anyone can afford, then I am glad they have my book. If £20 is what they think my writing is worth and what they want to reward me to keep on writing, then obviously that is absolutely lovely too and it pays it forward for another or underwrites those who feel £1 is the right donation for them right now.

Anyway, the point is, as ever I want to go first and get this going in my business. I am available to serve and you can decide what you want to pay for that right not. Keep an eye on my Facebook page and I will publish the timing of the PWYW slots each day.
