Quite some time ago one of my colleagues said something to me that hit hard. “The only people who can afford you are the ultra-wealthy, who tend not to get the same level of buy-in from the financial sting.”
I can’t make what I do free. Then it would have no value and I would get overworked and burn out. Believe me, I have done that and it doesn’t really work for anyone. Those who pay, tend to pay attention.
What I ask people to do is easy to do, and easy not to do, so some skin in the game helps when the meditation cushion gets rough on your bum and you want to trade the evening walk you love for popcorn and a movie.
What I can do is take a page from the Yoga book and have differential costs.
Pay what you can afford and be honest with yourself.
I am fully transparent on costs, but if you are choosing my services to save money, don’t. It will just waste both our time and frankly I do not have the energy for trying to convince you that it is worth your effort to spend more money on food, apps and tools that help you be more productive and less neurotic, and supplemental protocols to build you up from underneath. In fact, I regularly refer out or don’t take on clients that doesn’t feel like the right fit.
Here are the costs.
Initial Labwork $265 for females and $328 for males
Initial Consult and Follow-up – Now Variable ($400-$700)
Additional Lab Costs – Variable and I make no money on labwork.
Supplements – likely around $300 a month for the first few months with the goal being to get you to just the fundamentals as soon as possible, but sometimes that isn’t possible and you feel so much better you don’t really care.
