In today’s episode we discuss whether it’s more virtuous to give your products away for free, or to charge for your work.
If a corporation is making 25% profit or more, eyebrows go up and there may be pressure to “give back.” Have you ever wondered about that language? It’s as if this implies they “took it” from someone.
Even someone as successful as Michael Hyatt, has wondered, “Is it more virtuous to give my products away?” This NY Times bestselling author, former CEO of Thomas Nelson, and blogger with over 1 Million readers per month gave his content away during his first three years of blogging.
When he started selling his first ebooks, he struggled with thoughts that he was “selling out.”
But after much consideration, he concluded that it’s essential to charge for your work.
Today I share 8 Reasons Why Charging for Your Work Is More Virtuous than Doing it for Free.
Tip of the Week
This Week’s Tip of the Week is a Christmas gift I finally started using called Tile. When you use Tile, you’ll never lose anything again.
Place the Tile app on your phone and put the Tile in your car, on your keys, or with anything you might misplace, and you can track the exact location of the tile, so you’ll never have to search for a missing item again.
John 10:14, 27. Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me. My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”
In the past, I was troubled when Christians would say,”God told me….”
Since starting on my spiritual journey, I have examined the stories in the Bible and nowhere does it say that these things (like God speaking) would stop happening. Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice.”
Does God still speak today?
I want to encourage you to read the Bible for yourself, not through the lense of your pastor or your denomination, but through an objective lense.
Join us today as we discuss open visions, the audible voice of God, casting pearls before swine, hallucinations, and Parkinson’s disease. You have to hear this wide-ranging discussion for yourself.
I believe God does speak and we his children can hear his voice.
