There I was, minding my own business and surfing the web for information about Photography start ups. After sifting through "Are you trying to avoid paying taxes?" and "Are you sure you're good enough?" I stumbled on a little gem of a document. This was posted in a forum (can't remember what one - don't sue me). It deals with the idea of working for free. Now, if you know me and what I do for a living, you know working for free isn't in my nature. But I often do little jobs like hooking up grandma's VCR and changing my buddy's brakes on his 1998 Camaro for free. These are little things that help me gain Karma (real or not, who cares). I look at it like this, someday I'm gonna need someone to do something nice for me, so why not build up as much "credits' as I can? Then someday I can trade you a brake job for moving a 36" Toshiba TV from my basement to my curb. Blah blah blah ramble ramble ramble...check out this flow chart. It ought to make you laugh.
And so I really don't get sued, here's a link to the creator of this beautiful charts site! http://jessicahische.is/awesome/
