How often do the people patronizing your business expect you to "hook them up" by giving away your products and services for less than cost, or even free?

    I especially have this issue navigating family members' requests for hook-ups. Sometimes folks have projects with amazigng potential that are genuinely in need of assistance and, if they've proven that their mission and/or idea is well thought-out I'll usually work with what they have. However those who want free work performed on projects that are ill-conceived and lack vision I will not budge on.
