A Woman's Worth
A Woman's WorthPosted on Feb 8, 2010 by Goddess Sonya
I received an email today from someone I won't get into the specifics of the exchange but what I will say is that a woman has to value her worth in any situation. I don't do sessions for free for example; I come to the table with an extensive wardrobe, ample equipment and several years experience. Why would I expect a fee of anything less than what I'm worth? I don't do dinner for free either. I'm a terrific conversationalist, attractive company and I'm funny to boot. I can buy my own dinner and I'm not pressed for entertainment on a Friday night. I think if a man respects you and your time, he'll compensate you for it, be it currency or gift. I'm not trying to come off like some Diva, I'm simply a woman who values her time. Some may read this and think, "Who does she think she is?" as if it's somewhat more admirable to give freely of my time to all who ask rather than to set limits. I can't understand for the life of me why it's some big sin to be asked for fair trade in exchange for a woman's time and/or company and/or skill. I don't see any honor in meeting someone's bottom line that doesn't involve reciprocity. If more women were like this, I think men would act better and think more highly of us as the Goddesses we are.
