I voted “maybe” because it really depends. Working for yourself isn’t exactly the same thing as doing spec work for an outside client, but take for wxample my documentary project. I’m pouring abut every spare second of my life into it right now, on speculation that once complete, it will play at film festivals nation whide and garner me some income for my troubles. That’s worth it to me. On the other hand, if some potential client asked me to bend over backwards so “maybe” they could pay me, I don’t think I’d jump at that, unless the deal was good, and the chances of getting the gig were better.
