A Seasonal Way - Pay what you want places

snowdrops

I have never been truly short of money. I have always had family who will help out if things get bad, I've been with Euan since I was 18 and it has pretty much always been 'what is mine is yours'. I have been incredibly lucky.

However, even so, there have been many times in my life where inside my head I have felt unable to spend money on myself. In my early 20s when I was on benefits for a while, holding out for a museum job; when I had small children and we were past maternity benefits; when I was ill in my 30s and did so little actual work that my business made nothing. I believe it is a very common thing.

£10 may seem like a small amount - traditional marketing would probably phrase it as 'Only 4 cups of take out coffee' - but I know that, when I felt that I wasn't contributing financially, I would never have bought those coffees, I would never have spent £10 on an indulgence for myself.

This is why I wanted to have a few Pay What You Can places on A Seasonal Way. A chance to take money out of the way- to stop it being the hurdle.

This is completely inspired by the many courses I have taken over the years where free or reduced places are offered - Marie Forleo's B School was the first place I saw it, but almost everyone I admire now offers something similar when they build a course or a workshop - it is a gesture that recognises that not everyone can join in at full price.

If you would like to apply for one of the places (there are currently 5) simply email me (jane@snapdragononline.co.uk) with 'pay what you can' as a email header. I don't need to know any details. We will chose people at random on 5th February after registration closes. I then send a PayPal link which allows you to choose whatever amount you like.

And if you know anyone who might benefit, please share.
