    Thank you for writing this! I’m at the tipping point in my career where I can no longer afford to give my time away for free, and I have many of the examples you’ve gone through here sitting in my inbox waiting to be answered because I haven’t practiced valuing myself. Can you please point me at your canned responses? How do you measure the value of opportunity (people asking for things) and decide where to focus?

      “…I’m at the tipping point in my career where I can no longer afford to give my time away for free…Can you please point me at your canned responses?…”

      Do you see what you did here? You assume (1) she even has “canned responses”, and (2) she’s willing to dig them up and organize for you *for free*, given this essay lamenting doing such a thing. Life is hard 🙂
