ordered a book on Amazon for a client

that I’ll give to her the next time we meet. It relates to some of the things we’ve been talking about and I think she’ll like it.

One of the benefits of charging clients a significant amount of money is that it gives you much more freedom for things like this. I can easily justify spending $20 on a book, not nickle and diming people for little expenses, not worrying about how much time we spend together, etc., becuase the overall fee is plenty high enough.

Interestingly, charging more money allows you to be more generous and less money-focused in every other aspect of your work.
