There are many people doing business around the world according to gift economy principles. It's an inspiring movement, and you can read about examples of other business in the links below.
Compared to building projects, for which we have a carefully designed process, a gift economy exchange for consultancy is simple.
After your first free meeting, we agree on regular meetings, which are a minimum of 1.5 hours.
After 3 meetings, or the end of the month, whichever comes first, you make a payment. What you pay is entirely up to you. You can base it on our conventional payment, by adjusting up or down, or simply make a judgement.
And that's it. We'll send a reminder of how many hours we've given in service, but you decide how to remunerate them.
If you would like to reflect on how to make this judgement, we have more food for thought on our page dedicated to gift economy principles. Or you can call and ask questions, get our take on it first hand, if that helps. But otherwise, we'll leave it to you.
