Would I do it for free?

I've been doing a lot of thinking and research, etc about the future and what's my next moves are going to be.  I read about a successful entrepreneur who approaches decisions with a question.  He asks "Would I do this for free?"  That's a tall question and one I don't know that I've ever asked myself.  If money wasn't a concern, would you do it for free?  There's a LOT of work that comes through that the answer would absolutely be no for.  Would I edit presentations all day for free?  No chance.  Would I create video content for some of the agency clients I've been working with for free?  Sure.  Would I travel the world taking photos of bands for free?  Absolutely.

Next time you have a work decision you need to ask yourself "Would I do _____ for free?"  If you can't quickly say yes than maybe it's time to look at another opportunity.
