“We’ve all been given a gift, the gift of life.
What we do with our lives is our gift back.” -Edo
Over the years I have been trying to quantify my services based on my overheads, what I think my skills are worth, what I am worth , as well as comparing myself to the rest of the market of our industry.
I never felt that I really was able to find the right “price” for my services as one session might be very powerful to one individual and not as supportive to another. For one person it might be worth thousands of dollars, for another a hundred or less.
I was also concerned to not be able to open my private practice and workshops to those who could not afford it. Chanelle and I, in response to this issue, decided to offer community acupuncture. However, the less financially fortunate ones could still not have access to Transformation Streaming sessions and workshops.
In short trying to put a price on my services has always been a big challenge. If the price is to low, I get overworked and can’t bring in enough to maintain my child, my family and my work. On the opposite, if I charge a higher amount, it becomes more about me and what I feel I am worth, which also disconnects me from others and where they find themselves in their lives.
I often considered sliding scale but never felt connected to it as it is about money, meaning at some point the practitioner gives more than he can and the receiver might pay more than what they feel they received. Thus creating an imbalance between giving and receiving.
