What is an hour of your expertise worth?


Remember an easy rule of thumb is 1 hour 20 min = 3% of your time (for a 40-hour work week). Then you would simply volunteer about 5 hours per month.

Even if you don't charge by the hour you can put in your best guess at fair market value of an hour of your time. (Don't underestimate yourself — depending on your experience it's easily $50, $100 or $250/hr).
