Hourly Billing Is Nuts— Stop Trading Time For Money

The handsome and talented Chris Do of Blind and The Futur interviewed me live on YouTube today. We chatted for 90-minutes but it flew by - everyone had a blast. I was truly blown away by the professionalism and production quality evidenced by Chris and his team.

Here’s the description they posted for the interview:

Why is it a bad idea to bill hourly? How can you make more money and work less? How hourly billing limits the growth of your business. How hourly billing damages your relationships with clients. How does value pricing work? How does value pricing differs from hourly billing? How to start the transition from hourly billing to value pricing. Never charge an overage again. Never justify your price. Jonathan Stark is a former software developer who is now on a mission to rid the world of hourly billing. He is the author of Hourly Billing Is Nuts, the host of Ditching Hourly, and writes a daily newsletter on pricing for independent professionals.

And here are the discussion points that Chris captured during our talk:

(Aside: he captured all these AND made slides for them in real-time - incredible!)
