Work without salary?
Often, I cannot estimate the value of my work for others properly. It is a subjective matter: For one person my advice is incalculably valuable. For the other it is only a small tip, a jigsaw puzzle part on his way. Maybe he is even disappointed because he had expected more from me.
What would happen if I estimated no firm hourly wage for my work, but asked my customers to decide how much my work is worth? It is very tempting to take this path. I simply do my work and then leave the burden to my customer to decide how much to pay me. There is a possibility that I get bamboozled but honestly? I think that I might get paid quite well.
What is your opinion? Would you dare to try it this way?
But maybe I am just an incorrigible idealist who is dreaming of the basic income :-). Photo credit: marfis75 via photopin cc
