Ditching Hourly is a business podcast focused on breaking the habit of trading time for money. My intent is to teach independent consultants how to build a better business by changing the way they think about pricing their work. This is a tough mindshift for most people, so I chose the podcast format because it conveys information in a way that is extremely persuasive. I’m on a mission to rid the earth of hourly billing and my hope is that Ditching Hourly will help achieve this, one listener at a time 🙂

Ditching Hourly 029: Be The Expert
There's a Seinfeld episode where Jerry hires a carpenter to build him some kitchen cabinets. The carpenter is insanely, hilariously, indecisive and at every turn asks for Jerry's opinion about how he (the carpenter) should do his own job.
"which hinge should I use?" etc
You almost expect the guy to ask Jerry how to hold the hammer.
My question to you is this:
Are you doing the same thing with your clients?
