I’ve been trying to figure out how to get paid for coming up with ideas or problem solving.
I’ve been thinking about research funding and how problematic the current system is, and how it could be corrected. I was thinking Patreon might be the solution and I realized that it could be for me as well.
I have no intention of running ads on this site ever. I don’t want to sell e-books or put things behind a membership paywall, this information is too important. So I’ve made an account and if you can afford to support me, I’d appreciate it. There are also higher tiers on Patreon if you want to contact me to address something specific for you. While I have hundreds of ideas swirling around in my brain, I can only grab and output one at a time.
I’ve disabled comments, but if you’re really stuck and can’t figure out where to start unraveling your pain puzzle, you can connect with me through my Patreon. I understand this is somewhat of a paywall. I have to balance my need for self care with my desire to help others. By filtering this way I can allow contact in return for strengthening my foundation by allowing me to funnel that money to others who are willing and able to support me, so that I can in return focus on this system I’m trying to refine.
Anything that I document to solve an individual problem I will share (anonymized) here as well, so your contribution will unlock the information for anyone with the same problem.
And for one time support I just added buymeacoffee (10/23/2022):
My priorities right now are caring for myself, my child, my pets, my relationship, my community, my planet.
My garden projects address the self, child, community & planet priorities. I only have a limited amount of physical energy and time to work on the projects. By supporting me financially, it allows me to pay for help, which then frees up some of my time and energy.
