ALMA --- thanks for making this information available (and free) If every LCO would "read and heed" or in this case simply listen and apply, they would establish a realistic rate. They might realize that the latest and greatest piece of equipment is not really making them more money.

The advice given is sound and clear. Also it is less opinionated then some threads here can get. (not all! but some)

Also this is a forum where people post and read. Do not get me wrong the advice is VERY GOOD and the source of information here is great.

But, He is making videos and lets face it for most watching a video vs. reading is easier to do and sometimes just easier to follow. So if he charges a couple of dollars for taking time out of his day to sit and record, edit, whatever etc. I don't think its so wrong. Hes not asking for a huge amount and from the 2 videos i have seen he does seem to offer good and true advice.

Please understand i think this site is great and I'm not knocking it or anyone here but, he just offers another way of presenting it and perhaps some information that others have not mentioned. In a form that is perhaps easier to understand for some and more or less void of an opinion leaving just facts to go off of.

Just my take on it.

And thanks for that video post Tommy was helpful least for me.

Thanks for the kind words guys. I'll be doing a follow-up lesson soon for everyone who requested the video that will go into detail how each new piece of business can effect both your overheads and your manhour rate. As always, don't hesitate to ask for help in any area you are struggling with.

I do agree it is good advice. I'm def. not putting him down for that. Also I agree that even though you can get the same advice here, you have to sift through the b.s posts that people do just to get their post count up! Which happens constantly... but there are times when you can get sound advice from a good person on here. I would suggest for Tommy to put up small clips as a preview, then I would think more people would be able to see what he offers and might be willing to give money for his thoughts. JMO

No matter what. Good Luck Tom! You offer some good advice and could def. help a lot of people out!
