Two cents worth it?

So, I offered my wife some advice.  Yeah, I forgot about rule #1.

Anyway I should’ve taken my own advice – never give advice… just do consulting at $1000 per hour.  No refunds.  Often people undervalue  advice if you undervalue it by giving it away for two cents.

Next time someone is kinda-sorta looking for input but not really, put a price tag on it. “I have an idea that I think will be a really good fit for you. You can hear it for… $50.  Totally worth it though!”  You will at the least grab there attention and maybe take their minds off their problems .  Unless they have financial problems – then that’s kind of mean.
