These words already add more richness to our sense of meaning than do, seller and buyer. In this way I take more creative control over my projects/gifts, allowing me the space to grow as a creator. Once a Gift is given, responsibility is passed onto the receiver, to continue with a Gift in kind, in whatever means or form they can.
What this looks like on a practical level:
- I charge clients the materials cost incurred for the job, plus an additional 20% to cover business costs. (Tools, Vehicle, Insurance, Property etc..)
- I submit a break-down of my hours
- The receiver then chooses to pay me based on their gratitude and means. Payments can be made as a one time lump sum, or as a recurring subscription to my business.
- I would encourage and urge clients to apply to a recurring payment, this allows my services to be shared across a much larger wealth/income bracket.
