If you don’t get paid, it’s not a job.

It can be a project, it can be a collaboration, it can be something you do for fun, or to help a friend, but it’s not a job. When you are a freelancer, it can be ok to work for free in some circumstances but you should never mistake that volunteer work for a job. Yes, even if someone promised you royalties or a “bonus” or revenue share. Unless the people involved have a proven track record of successful projects, you won’t see a dime.
