I feel quite strongly

CapeTalk presenter Refilwe Moloto says she's done with being taken for granted and shares her outlook on invoiceable work.

Breakfast host Refilwe Moloto is done with "favours" this year.

She says people should quit surrendering their knowledge and skills for free and start invoicing for their work.

No more letting people try to hustle your services for free.

No more doing things "for exposure".

No more letting others "pick your brain" over coffee.

No more compromising. No more negotiating. No more!

Respect yourselves. I feel quite strongly about this. Do not let anyone turn you into a discount item.

Refilwe Moloto, CapeTalk Breakfast host

Refilwe relays the story that led her to this epiphany last week.
