Quickly, she was attracted to the seemingly backwards strategy of not setting a price and to allowing her customers to determine the value of her offering, and to sharing what she learned through her blog, My Innerpreneur. 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.
