Paid $3000 an hour to give your opinion? Basically.

I often post about the value in giving without expecting in return, but still how you end up getting rewarded in unexpected ways. The attached DM screenshot speaks to that.

Paid $3000 an hour to give your opinion? Basically.

This person messaged me with questions, asking if I could give my opinion on a marketing topic. Took maybe 30 seconds to GENUINELY read his message and give a reply. Was happy to do so, and that was the end.

Few hours later, $25 gift card as a thanks. $25 x 30 seconds = $50/minute x 60 minutes per hour = $3000/hour.

Bit embellished, but point stands. Giving without expecting in return pays.
