Early in my freelance career (way before founding Relish Studio) I had the opportunity to cover for a friend going on an extended vacation.
After meeting with the client and agreeing we were a good match, I came up with a rate that I thought would win the gig.
They quickly agreed—and nearly immediately said, “We would have paid a lot more than that.”
You see, we had two different ideas about the “value” of the work I was to provide. Same effort and outcome… different numbers.
I bring it up because my guest on today’s podcast discussed this concept with me.
Taylor Masamitsu is from Creating for Justice, a great organization that connects people who want new skills with volunteer experts who’ll teach them—all in the name of social justice.
It’s an interesting model that has a TON of potential as we see online learning and the social justice movement intersect.
Creating for Justice allows donors to tap into expertise at a very low rate—as low as $5 per month, in fact. Taylor and I discuss how to supercharge this giving potential so that more money flows back into the organization…And the solution may surprise you.
