How do you charge?
I charge a daily rate.
What is included in a ‘Day’?
Well, for a start I don’t work by the clock…my ‘day’ can be two meetings with you in a month (several hours each) plus research, or one day at your business, or several short meetings…whatever you require, and each business is different so my approach can be tailored to your requirements.
How will I know if you can help me?
Our first chat is free, so you can decide if you want to go ahead when it suits you. If I cannot help you I will say so, and recommend someone I trust who can.
And you guarantee results? How?
I believe that if I assist your business in a way in which you receive tangible benefits then my rate is a small investment. Your assurance is that, if I do not provide a benefit there is no fee.
How do we decide if you have earned your fee?
This should be easy. Either I have helped or I have not. If there is a disagreement we work it out.
Do you have an hourly rate?
No. I believe hourly rates make everyone nervous and may stop you from contacting
me to ask a question or seek advice, because you fear it may be an extra cost. Most
consultants charge a minimum of $150 per hour, some much more, and offer no guarantees
...and how much per day?
My rates start from $500 per day for a small business, including all of the above.
