One way to do this is to price what it would cost to replace the person's
work, even if they are not paid for it.

So, for example, a stay-at-home mom of 3 kids can figure out what it would
cost to have a qualified professional take care of, cook for, clean up after
her kids, and base her "hourly rate" on that.  (An enlightening exercise for
other reasons, too)
