Re: Cutout cut throats
Stick to your guns and let the chips, er chumps, fall where they may. If you don't spend any money on a job, then you haven't really lost anything. this isn't how you make a living, is it?
Sell yourself, but be willing to say thank you when turned down. Also, when they call you again, charge them more. Don't gouge, just bump it up a little so they know they should have taken you on the first time.
What are you bringing to the table that the other guy isn't? Why should someone pay you what you think is right? Sell yourself to me.
