What do you discount, if anything, for friends and family?
I alway charge full wack for friends and family as they understand I have to make a living.
There is no such thing as mates rates if you ask me.
Mind you my sons always catch me out on a good day. Bless em
I guess they know theyll get a decent job, that's the bonus for them. I will harden up and quote my 'full whack' then
It's not as if any of them are as hard up as me
They can take advantage for sure but you have to remember you could be earning your normal wack doing other jobs instead.
Very good friends O can do free of charge on Sunday but in generall I would prefer if they get someone else so no problems and all are happy
I will still do freebies from time to time if the mood takes me.
I did a small ground floor flat today which turned out to be a chaps wife I know, very young family, hard working, not well off, I did it for a fiver as opposed to £8.
Also do a couple of others cheap as they have got me quite a bit of work in the past, and a mate of mine does odd jobs for me metal work/welding wise so always give his a clean when I go over for nothing.
I guess though unless that young family know it's good rate, they might not think any the better of you or your efforts. But if you tell them, it's like 'accidently' leaving the price tag on a gift.
Don't mix business with pleasure.....
