When you sell a house, you pay a realtor, various service and inspections, possibly the tax man. Maybe an accountant and/ or lawyer … and and and … there is no question … you pay.

When you buy a house, it’s not dissimilar, you pay.

Need the services of a lawyer .. pay.

an accountant .. pay

buying ‘little things’ in stores … pay

big things, like a car, airline ticket? … pay

need a plumber, electrician, carpenter … pay

a ride from a to b … pay.

You get the picture … you … pay

Except for some reason people don’t really want to pay you for your writing, your music, your advice, your help, your network … all that is apparently on the ‘pay it forward’ basis.
