:::Smacking Forehead:::

NOW I get it!!!

Check this out: Does Free Have Value?

And then ask yourself this question: What have you been giving away for 'free', that you should have been making people qualify for?

I'm sitting here thinking: love, trust, time attention, money, and trouble.

Do you care about people, and give of yourself freely?

Do you find that people simply take what you have to give, and walk away, often without so much as a 'thank you'?

And forget about a reciprocal favor, later. That doesn't happen, either.

Perhaps you should rethink your strategy. Stop giving so much of yourself without a price.

Remember, free has no value.

Oh, I couldn't agree more...if I do P.C. work for free, it is NEVER seen as "of value". If however, I charge something for it, you can bet your ass it is seen as "of worth" & thought of as of "high value". YES, whatever I did is precisely the same, the only difference being that the perception of the receiver of the work has changed.
so, to sum up - if you wish your efforts to be valued, charge & charge well for them!
