My Tuesday Advice ~ Don't Give Your Ideas Away For Free!


I sat down yesterday to Vlog and got very long-winded! You know how I hate Vlogs longer then 3-4 minutes so I chopped and spliced it into two.  This portion has some really great advice that I learned the hard way.

    As I'm just now re-entering the freelance world, this is great advice. I think when we've been out of the working world for a while, we're so eager to prove ourselves that we end up under-valuing our work. Thanks!

    Hi. Thanks so much for this vlog. It is the first time I've seen one and I think it is a wonderful use of technology to differentiate oneself.

    I've worked as a consultant too (for companies as well as myself). I think you made some great points about not giving away your ideas for free because I've seen this happen as well.

    I'm just getting started again on the freelance side and this is something I definitely needed to hear. Vlog on!

    I am famous for giving away ideas! In fact, I'm really good at it.

    Enough is enough!

    I'm happy to help people out because Ive been helped out along the way, too, but I've got to make a living, too.


    Great points in your vlog! Thanks.

    Thanks for the advice. I always wondered about presenting and then them ignoring you.
