15) Should I charge clients for my services?
When you dedicate yourself to your client's highest healing good and you dedicate your time to education, research, knowledge, heart and passion, thus helping cancer patients/families/survivors live well and thrive through diagnosis, treatment or prevention...you also deserve to be paid. Your time is precious. Your dedication to hours are all for healing. Through my experience, most people will not receive the healing they truly need without some sort of balance or exchange. As coaches, we provide proven integrative tools and information for healing cancer, which help so many. When you do everything with a pure heart, helping all the people God sends your way...you help create the right environment for healing. Thus empowering them with hope and knowledge! A priceless gift!
