but my point is I don't try and control the client. it's not a my way or the high way business. I give my recommendation and if they don't take it I ultimately do what they want. they are the ones who sign my checks.

in this business I see it somewhat as I am the employee and they are the boss. but you guys are free to run your business however you want.
I don't try to control my clients either, but to control my business. There's a difference. But I will not let my customers control me or my business. They need to work within the parameters I set. They can state their preferences, but ultimately I control how it gets done and when. If they want to control the how and when they need to hire an employee and not a contractor.
