If I Wanted to Work for Free…

This one was too good not to post for all my freelance friends and followers out there:


That’s not to say I won’t write things for free if I want to. Often I’ll just want to promote a person, brand, or product because I really do like them and want to spread the word. But when people come looking to “hire” you for “free,” that’s when you need to pull this sign out!

  1. LOLs! Indeed, Andrew. But if we worked for free, how could we then afford sushi? Yeah, that’s a deal breaker. Must have sushi and overpriced coffee. #justsayin

    For some reason, I think a lot of people just assume freelance writers work for free. I ask them “Would you expect your plumber or mechanic to work for free?”

    That gets them thinking every time.
