Re: Working for free

Benny, you hit the nail head.

This year, I think my work is awesome.
Last year, I thought my work was awesome.
Two years ago, I thought my work was awesome.
Three years ago, I thought my work was awesome.
Four years ago, I thought my work was awesome.

This year I look back at all the crap I did years before.

Always practicing, always improving.

Re: Working for free

Screw working for free. Especially if it's commercial work. I recently ditched a place because they wanted an average of 60+ hours a week for the price of 40 hours. I definitely knew I was getting taken advantage of and left. I knew other places to work that would pay for what I put into it, so what is the advantage of working for free 20 hours a week?

I managed to get ahead while getting paid. I rely on all the people I met in the industry to find work. You should get paid for whatever your skill level is. A little less at first and then ask for more as your skills improve. My skills improved and all the while I was getting paid some form of a wage.
