Its a New Year and as the norm is, everyone makes a resolution.
Actress and TV show host Joseph Benjamin was not left out, but his came with a twist.
He reportedly revealed in a Blackberry Broadcast sent to friends and anyone his list that his good Samaritan days are over and will no longer offer free services to anyone because he has bills to pay. So if you planned asking the Project Fame host for a favour, you had better think again.
Read his broadcast below:
â€œHappy New Year folks, glad we all had a seamless crossover into the New Year. It is New Year, things take a turn for the better. Change is constant. We should all desire to grow and achieve as much as God desires for us. Please permit me to share this general announcement:
Please donâ€™t ask me to do things pro bono for you, or your organization/magazine/newspaper/etc, unless you fancy being let down, personally.
I have serious bills to pay, just like the rest of yâ€™all, so if you want to hire my services, we can talk, but otherwise, donâ€™t even think about approaching me â€“ the time for me to pump up my resume with the fleeting thrill of being a good samaritan is overÂ unless you pay for it.Â I repeatÂ over!
And nope- no friendship calls as far as business is concerned. Thanks, I have to draw the margin somewhere, and since this last yearly quarter seems to be the one where Iâ€™ve been asked the most for free expertise, let me reiterate once and for all: nothing in the world is free, my expertise being the least amongst them.â€
