Should You Work For Free?

Surprisingly, the answer is “It depends…”

A few weeks ago, I was inspired to rant write about my frustration with people who don’t want to pay for our services (See “Rock for a Fee, Not for Free“. So today, when photographer John Ricard (who also shared thoughts on working for cheap/free on his blog) shared a “Should I Work for Free?” chart he found on, I was highly amused. It was created by Jessica Hische and is basically a flow chart with questions you should be asking if someone asks you to do something for free. Works for pretty much any profession. I think I’ll blow this up and put it on my wall. Awesome!
