I would probably call once to say hello although I wonder if you don't already have enough to do with all govern over and the upcoming spring with the farm.

i think it is a great idea hip. your knowledge is of value. if someone needs immediate access to your knowledge, i think it is fair to charge for it.
i also think $60.00 an hour is a fair price.

our constitution allows for freedom of speech.

No Worries

Straight up...get caught in a jam and have the opportunity to roust up the hippie to talk you through it, Who could resist ? I couldn't. Count me innz, I'm with Irish......... helllzz yaaaah. I mean really, to have access to you via phone is invaluable.

question hip.... Are we hereby grandfathered in at the $1 an hour ? (hehehe..half jokingly, as high demand kicks in) CUZ thats a deal in my book :eusa_clap.

I can see this business idea mushrooming (couldn't resist...I know, bad)

No cold water here man , you KNOW what yer doing or you wouldn't be doing it. Let us know when innoculation day is bro...

Peace and Best Wishes,
LSD

Cool idea! :eusa_clap

I've seen something similar done in the context of helping high-tech business startups, and I think it would work just as well here. There were two separate services offered; one was regularly-scheduled conference calls where up to X number of people could be on at once (kind of like chat). It was mostly done lecture-style, with the head consultant talking about the state-of-the-art of their industry followed by questions from the participants. There were two or three technical consultants participating in the calls and up to 50 clients at a time so plenty of expertise was available. In this context (Dial-a-Hippie) it could be a general Q&A session and with everyone paying to be there it will most likely go smoothly though I doubt a disposable phone could handle something like that. Skype probably could, though. The other option was personal one-on-one consultation, either with a retainer paid in advance or at the beginning of the call.

The conference calls were cheaper than the personal consults, and the most expensive option was paying a retainer in advance for personal consultation but that gave the client the right to call any day of the week (during reasonable hours) for immediate assistance.

There are a lot of questions people probably have that they would like to know the answers to but not so much that they'd pay the personal consult fee to hear them, or if all they had was one question then the cheaper conference call option would be much more attractive to them. That's my two cents...
