Free advice for freebie seekers…

If you’re going to approach me for a free reading, then my advice is that you proceed with extreme caution…

But because I am feeling generous, let me offer you a free tip…

Here’s how NOT to do it…

Don’t turn up on my business page which you haven’t bothered to like then inbox me with a poorly written text talk message devoid of p’s & q’s and then expect me to leap at the opportunity to give up my time and knowledge for free…

If you want a free reading then go ask the Google oracle… there are plenty of sites out there that offer free readings…

But if you want a professional reading from a professional reader then maybe you should consider putting your hand into your pocket.

What makes you think that you can have my service for free?

Sure… professional readers do now and then offer free readings but we do so for our own reasons and will advertise when and how these readings are being offered…

But mostly we don’t read for free because we have bills to pay, kids to feed, etc, etc, etc.. Never mind the costs incurred from the insane amount of decks and books that have been bought over the years… I’ve just had to order a 3rd copy of my favourite deck because it’s had so much use…

And please spare me the line about we should read for free because we have a ‘gift’.

NEWSFLASH!!!

EVERYBODY has a gift… and I don’t see many premier league footballers hanging their heads in shame or refusing to take payment for their gift and talents…

I find it sad that the sense of entitlement is so prevalent…

I find it amazing that some people can display such bare face cheek…

And it’s not just readings that people expect for free. About a year ago, I was sat with a group of artists in a pub doing some life drawing. A woman picked up one of my pieces, waved it aloft, walked around the room and shouted ‘Who drew this?’

Someone pointed her in my direction, she marched straight up to me and informed me that she was taking it!

I said to her – I beg your pardon?

-I’m taking this!

– No you’re not!

-Yes! I am! I like it, so I’m taking it!

I looked her dead in the eye and moved slowly forwards until the end of my nose almost kissed the end of hers and I said

– Put it down…

-No! It’s mine!

-OK… you leave here with MY picture and I promise that I will hunt you down and drink the blood of your first born…

-You’re joking? I can’t have it?

-Try it and see…

She put it down…

I’m sorry but I just can’t comprehend that mindset… I’m sure that she expected me to be flattered by her attention and be grateful for her to take it… But why do I care what strangers with no manners think? Also… if I was going to give it away, then I’d happily have given it to the model would gave up her time for me to draw her…

So… In brief… If I’m offering free readings (or art…) don’t ask me, I’ll most likely already know you and will approach you…

Until then…
