I just found you and I am thoroughly enjoying this podcast. Maybe you have discussed this recently, but could you discuss the structure of how to charge and discuss the range.
I am really enjoying this podcast. The interviews are well thought out and include a huge variety of points of view. I started with the early ones and am learning something new each episode.
Inspirational and Practical Advice
As someone newer to the world of professional genealogy, this podcast is so helpful. Great line of questioning by Marian Pierre-Louise (so often asking the specific questions I have too!) and authentic advice from those who have already travelled this path. Can’t say enough good things about it! I learn something new from each one.
