So I'm going to talk a little bit about doing work for free. Conventional wisdom states that you should never work for free for all the obvious reasons. But some reasons aren't always obvious to those on the outside. [1/many]
Firstly, what is "doing work for free"? I'm not talking about volunteering or any kind of altruism. I'm talking about our regular creative work (writing, designing, coding, whatever) that we would normally charge for. [2/many]
So what work would I choose to give away for free? For me personally, I've chosen to do small websites for friends/family over the years, and more recently I've designed a few free book covers as part of a possible career change. [3/many]
