...and the best deal around.

Also, you're not allowed to feel bad. I'd only let you get away with that kind of guilt if you pulled the plug on the service.

Damn it economy! Nah, really it's still a good deal. Now all I have to do is finish something, the $80 is the easiest part.

About time.

I'll be submitting some more stuff soon. That's still a great price in comparison.

don't axe the service, scott!

at least, not until you've read mine.

i promise that all the years of reading 1,000's of scripts for $60 will be worth it on that day.

What a rip-off.

Admit it -- you're in cahoots with the oil companies. Wesson, Johnson&Johnson's, 3-in-1... you're all the same.

I wash my hands and one foot of you.

Wait, did I miss the interim $75 Notes? :-D

Good for you -- go to three figures! Your time is valueable and your brain is invalueble!

Good for you, it's still so worth it!

Thanks for the awesome notes... Again!!

Worked out as an hourly rate, it's still an embarrassingly underpriced service. I hope you're getting value out of the experience, Scott, because there's really no other way to justify undercutting yourself like that.

I make that in an hour as a trainer. Preying on people's insecurities is so much more financially rewarding.

Scott,

IMO you undervalue yourself. You must read & type blisteringly fast to be able to charge that little. I'm surprised that it too this long to bump up to $80.

How long does it take to process a script from beginning to end? 2-3 hours? That's $27/hour. You could easily double your fee, or perhaps bump it up to $99.

If people value what you do, and it appears they do, they'll be willing to pay.

No sense running yourself into the ground, getting burnt out, and having no time for your own writing, and not getting fairly compensated for your time.

Suddenly my $79.95 notes are a bargain.

Absolutely worth it! Your notes are some of the most insightful notes I've received.

Worth every penny. And more.
