It’s kind of hard to read, even once you’ve enlarged it so here’s what it says:

Hi guys,

I need some excellent copywriters but I can’t afford to pay you or anything crazy like that, so I’d like you to work for free to help set up the business that’ll make me rich. At this point, we’ll *definitely* pay you, or give you credit, or something.
You must submit a minimum amount of work, be in contact 24/7 and give up all rights to your writing.

Also I’d like someone to do my tax returns. Again I cannot afford to pay you but I’ll make sure your name goes on the bottom of it.

(p.s: This could definitely/possibly lead to regular work in higher paid markets, where you can earn up to £0.30 per 20,000 word article!)
