Pay What It’s WorthNon-Fiction
What if the customer determined the price they pay, rather than the business, based upon the value they receive? How might that change things? Pay What It’s Worth pricing is a system allowing for a different way of valuing the products, services and experiences we have and exchange with others. Each of us has the power and ability to create our own economy, and approach to valuing products and services. In Pay What It’s Worth, you’ll explore the power and potential, as well as the pitfalls, of not setting prices. Mutually beneficial exchanges are possible and sustainable for you, as a business owner, and as a customer. Your integrity is your most valuable wealth creation tool.

Unfulfilled at 26, Tara Joyce left her corporate marketing career to start her own business and to explore how she wanted to be of service.

Today, the “Pay What It’s Worth” concept and Tara’s published work support people globally in exploring their own scarcity and fear-based ideas around money, value, and business relationships. Tara lives in Peterborough, Canada with her husband, daughter, and canine son.
