I charge five dollars to block out time for us to get to know each other and see how we might work together because during the course of our conversation, regardless of your project, problem, or the challenge you're facing, I will provide some kind of actionable advice. There's no way I wouldn't offer the benefit of my decades of expertise as we talk -- to do otherwise would result in an inauthentic exchange.

That expertise, and my time, is worth far more than a five-spot... and five bucks also makes sure you have a wee bit of skin in the game, too.
Yes, at a mutually convenient location within fifteen miles of postal code 90804.
