How much to charge your friends
When your friends expect you to provide your product or service to them for (next to) nothing, explain to them that you have to charge your friends or your company would go bankrupt.
This is because none of your enemies are doing business with you.

We can also explain to them that we cannot offer a room for free - because of the tax laws. If you give a room to friends or family then it's off for a year from the tax write offs or whatever. Obviously I use a CPA so I don't know the exact wording of it.
They expect us to break the law?

Perfect! And so true. No one who really hates us has ever come back!

With our family having been in the trade for 20 years now our friends know the drill and only come when its not busy or expect to pay at least half price.
