If you're too good to do free work, the opportunities you really want will pass by you everytime.
The problem isn't doing work for free. The issue is that no one ever taught you how to evaluate an opportunity.
Understanding when to strategically give your time is one of the most valuable skills you will ever develop.
One of most misunderstood concepts of basic Financial Literacy is:

The Dollar is the weakest form of Currency to exchange for goods and services.

Once you build *Relationships*, you can exchange money, resources, favors, respect.
When you exchange time for money, it shows that you don't understand the value of your non-refundable time because you're negotiating using money. (read that twice)

Those who work for free tend to have stronger relationships which they exchange for money down the line.
If you're a "I don't do anything for free" type, chances are your generosity was taken advantage of at some point in the past. You never learned to set boundaries. You never learned how to say "No" until it was too late.

Giving freely supports Universal Law.
