When you’re running your own business, there will be times when you come across freeloaders - people who ask for favours, including free or discounted products and services.

In this episode, I share tips and strategies for dealing with these types of people.

Here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:

  • Why being upfront about what you offer and what you charge can deter some freeloaders
  • Tips on pointing people towards your free content and offerings when they request your time or products free of charge       
  • How using a ‘gatekeeper’ can make it easier to deal with freeloaders
