negotiating

It's amazing how often I find myself in these discussions. And each time I find myself surprised. The requests sound so reasonable, but in the end they're asking us to devalue our time and services. I can't see someone asking a lawyer to write up a contract for free the first time, or to just pay their accountant to do half their taxes, but companies often treat their agency like this.

I guess that's just the business, and it's in our hands as to whether we're going to have the self-respect to just say "no".



Huge kudos to whomever put this together.
