Time is money. As someone who talks openly about where Im putting my own money daily, I am inundated with emails that ask questions and request meetings–so much so that I turned the demand for my knowledge into a business, where I charge money for my time and guidance. If youve put in the years–if not decades–to become a true expert in your field, dont be afraid to charge money for your time, because youve earned it. And if you charge the right price, your customer also benefits immensely. I see far too many people doling out too much of their time for free to anyone who asks because they like being popular and well-liked. Call me selfish all you want, but I prefer being efficient and careful with my time.
