If you purchase some of that time, you will pay $ 70 per hour. Flat rate. Non-negotiable.
Because that’s what its value is to me.
I too have friends and family and work commitments and home commitments, ad infinitum.
If I agree to make time to be in a certain place at a particular time for you, I am prioritising your time ahead of those other commitments.
Should you choose to waste my time by not showing up, you will never get any of my time again.
I cannot resell that time to anybody else. I can’t get it back.
If you do not show up for your appointment, you are stealing my time. And my time is valuable.
