Over the years, I have spent a lot of time doing various community projects, projects that can add to your income, but it will not make you financial wealthy.
Community Projects can open doors, but it also attracts people seeking a discount. There is nothing wrong in giving a deal to someone, but whatever you chose to do, it must be on your terms only.
Be mindful of those who feel they are doing you a favour, in helping you to build your brand, those are the one who can afford your normal fees 2 or 3 times over what you normally charge.
Trust me do not give away your valuable time, service or products , for nothing, or for a discount, unless it his part of your long or short term business plan.
As night follow day, bills need to be paid, and some agencies like Tax Agencies do not always negotiate for money owing.
