Fair exchange is quite literally what it says. Rather than price (and possibly over price) services I prefer to, and am guided to offer the option for the customer to choose how much to give in exchange for services. This exchange may be monetary or non monetary.
Besides being fair, and I trust my customers to be fair and not cheeky. It is also a way of loosening the control that money seems to have over us all these days. Rather than put all value on currency, I feel that it is better to put value on each other. Our uniqueness and our gifts. So, if you have a gift or something you do, that you can offer as an exchange ~ than feel free to make that offer. e.g. if you’re a hairdresser and you’re a local, offer a haircut in exchange for a reading or healing. Get the picture? Of course, money is welcome, but you choose what you wish to give, in a fair way of course.
I do however, state here, that I retain the right of refusal with regards to acceptance and of giving a service.
I hope customers old and new will embrace this new way of doing things. Blessings x
