The other day we were speaking with a person wanting to sell one of the technologies we have. The problem arose when she said she expects to make $300 an hour because that is what her rate was. This wasn’t a problem for us (because we had absolutely no intention of guaranteeing her that rate or any other rate) but since we wouldn’t agree to that rate we agreed to go in a different direction.
The issue this person has is no one else is paying her that rate either.
It doesn’t matter what you value your time at if no one else values it that way. It works the same as real estate, the cost of food, and everything else, your time is only worth what someone will pay for it. Your opinion (or my opinion) doesn’t matter.
Just something to think about.
Have a great day!
