Don’t work for nothing – no matter what

Here’s a quote from Australia’s richest person, Frank Lowy.

“I don’t work for nothing. I’m entitled to get paid.”

If making money is one of your working goals, then I think Lowy’s advice is worth remembering. Clearly, giving freebies isn’t a path to financial independence. When you work for free (volunteer, charitable work is the obvious exception), you’re telling the world what the value of your work is.
