I Can't Do Free

Sharon Hayes writes a brilliant essay on how and why she can no longer do free work, as a graphic designer/UI/creative guy I get these kind of requests all the time. Sharon nails it here. FTA: "In a typical day, I get anywhere from 10 to 50 questions and requests to do something for others at no charge. A small number of these are from actual friends, some are from acquaintances, some from people who know me (and I don’t know them) and others from referrals. I know that many others are in a similar situation. Perhaps not getting nearly the same volume as I do, but nonetheless, it is troublesome or has the potential to be so. "
