(82nd day, 283 more days to go)…may pass you by.
I can’t believe how most people wonder why they can’t catch a break when all they think about is how much they’ll be paid for a FREE opportunity. Instead, they should look at the bigger picture. I understand that some of you may think that my thoughts on this may be over the top. However, I’ve heard people constantly ask for an opportunity or watch them work their butts off on projects that may or may not go anywhere. Then when you do give them a shot the first thing out of their mouth is, “how much does it pay?” it makes you not want to move forward with helping them.
No, I’m not saying that you should do any and everything for free without asking any questions and hope that something comes out of it. Be patient and try not to ask so many questions because the offer may not come with all the bells and whistles at first. You never know that person may be checking your ability to complete a task before they offer you other opportunities. Especially, in this market where many people are creating jobs that are saving them from drowning in their debt. Learn how to turn nothing into something.
