Q.

I’m not a game developer. Will I still get something out of your blog?

A.

If you think outside the box, you probably will. And if you work for yourself, you’ll want to subscribe for sure!

 

Q.

Hey, I specialize in such-and-such industry and have content I'd like to sell or nicely give you for free because I think your readers would be interested...

A.

Please read this post. I'm not looking for clinical business/marketing content. Or content for the sake of it. If you're looking to sell your content, this is not the place to do it. I write my blog myself. Try ConstantContent or The Write Life if you'd like to shop your work.

Q.

I’d love to work with you! How much do you charge per hour?

A.

It depends on the complexity of the job which is why I offer some fixed price options because I know that being able to afford a consultant is often an issue for indies so I can be flexible with work arrangements that will work for the both of us.

Q.

No, I REALLY want to work with you but can’t pay you or think I should pay you less than what you’re asking because I’m a start-up with no money! So can you please do the job for less?

A.

Try asking this question to a lawyer, accountant, plumber, mechanic, or other professional who went to school for a long time, paid their dues in their field, and had a great deal of expenses in setting up a business. Then try a department store and ask them to unlock the designer goodies, pointing out that Target sells a knock-off of the same $5,000 purse for $50 and ask if you can buy it for less because you don’t like the price.

How did they react? Let me guess, they didn’t change their price or looked at you weirdly. That’s what’ll happen here!

Q.

But I just want to pick your brain for a few minutes!

A.

I get more brain-picking requests than a zombie buffet these days. So I made a Clarity FM profile where you can book just a couple minutes with me if you're not ready to invest in a full-scale strategy. Clarity's an awesome place where you can both sell your expertise and book time with others for theirs. Because wouldn't you also want to be paid for your time having your brain picked?

Q.

What kind of toad is Yael?

A.

She is a bufo terrestris (southern toad.) Sadly, she is no longer with us.

Q.

What is the meaning of life?

A.

Look behind door 42.
