So I was reading the Boston Globe this morning and there was an
article about how the psychic business seems to be booming in these
hard times. People are apparently desperate for a look at what the
future may hold for them economically. So why am I bringing this up?
Because all of the psychics interviewed charged between $100 and $200
per hour for their time. So the next time you think your time is only
worth $20 or $30 an hour to produce something that someone will be
able to use for years and years to come, remember that someone with
absolutely no formal training, and IMHO absolutely no real skills, is
charging 5-10 times that just to give some advice that may or may not
be true in any way shape or form and that most assuredly will not
have any lasting qualities to it at all. Incidentally, I know one of
the psychics who was interviewed. Told us, with great assurance (no I
wasn’t paying for it, he just offered it), we were going to have a
girl when my wife was pregnant. My SON, Sam is now almost 18. The guy
is still out there getting it wrong. Oh and charging people $100 plus
an hour for it too. Surely if he’s worth that much for what he does
you’re worth a whole lot more for what you do.
