In this week's episode of the Virtual Assistant Tips, Tricks + Advice Podcast I'm explaining why you should NOT work for free or for a testimonial.

You're expertise is worth so much more than that. If you don't value your worth, no one else will!

When you work for free or barter someone always gets the short end of the stick and may end up feeling taken advantage of. 

Charge something for your services but don't work for free or a testimonial.

Have a launch special - charge a discounted rate for a period of time or for a certain number of clients.

I have a blog + podcast on how to create your launch special - you can find it at https://www.thetechiementor.com/use-launch-specials-in-your-va-biz/

Here is the article I refer to on unpaid internships - be sure you understand your rights if you're going to intern.

I hope you'll listen and share your thoughts!
