In his awesome free eBook
279 Days to Overnight Success
Chris Guillebreau (The Art Of Non-Conformity)
addresses how most entrepreneurs and artists
start by working for free.

“Several people all said
that they were insane
to work for free
when first starting their business.
When I read those
comments, I thought,
“Am I missing something here?
I thought everyone
works for free
when they are starting something new.
That’s the whole
point of risk and reward.”

Working for free may be insane in the outside world,
but with most small
businesses it is actually quite normal.”

Not only normal, required.
Start ups mean long hours
with only the hope of getting paid.

That’s why advising a recently laid off employee
with no savings
to start her own business
might not be the best idea.
