What Does It Mean For You?

It means that I will discuss your project or need with you and provide you with an estimate in hours for me to accomplish the task.

I will then complete the task and turn it over to you when you are satisfied as a gift.

You then decide what to gift me you feel the job is worth based upon the hours I worked on it.

A Win-Win Situation!

There is no haggling.

You gift me what is a fair value to you.

This concept helps build trust among one another.
