And you love this person, and you want the best for them. Now ask yourself, what does that person deserve to make as a yearly salary? You could say, more than an elementary school teacher, but less than a garbage man. Or more than a housepainter, but less than a dentist. With some formula like that, plus a little research on what those people make, you could come up with a number for a yearly salary.<br /><br />Then, from that, do the math. If the job will take a week, divide by 52. If it'll take a day, divide by (365 - weekends - vacations). That could give you a starting point, anyway. If the result seems too puny, raise it; if it seems like too much for the client, give them a break. But that's just my idea for one way to go about thinking it through.Chris_Garrisonhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/15615953094478911201noreply@blogger.com
