How to Tactfully Halt Giving Free Advice to Your Friends & Their Friends, Too

When we read this piece on Fortune about whether or not you should charge your friends for advice, we nodded in collective agreement.

Let’s say you’re a blogger. Chances are a friend or a friend of a friend has reached out to pick your brain about how to blog, how to use SEO, how to get hits on your own site. Or maybe you’re a graphic designer, perhaps someone in your inner circle has asked about redesigning your own site.
