Now I have a question for you…..
My question is….. Is appropriate to save money by accepting free services from someone who earns a living this way? What are appropriate boundaries for getting “hooked up” by your friends?
- Your computer savvy friend that wiped out your virus for you
- Your electrician friend that installed a new ceiling fan
- Your mechanic friend that put in a new alternator
- Your hair dresser friend that cut your kids hair
Many people are giving and do not mind sharing their talents to help someone out, but when it takes time away from their family time or time that could have been spent earning, is it okay?
Are you being offensive if you try to pay someone that truly wants to do you a favor?
Have you ever had an experience like this? What do you think?
