Have you ever or often gone on an estimate with a prospect and all they keep talking about is money and saving it. They make comments like- Oh I don't need Disney land, Take it easy on me, I don't need the best materials , don't use too many lights, Are there cheaper materials available etc. Then you look around the interior and exterior of the home and you realize these people have purchased the best and can afford it. Just the same you find yourself doing things a little differently then you ordinarily would have just to save them money possibly at the expense of the project. Maybe your downgrading materials, putting 2 instead of three lights on a certain tree because you believe they will balk and not hire you unless. I guess what I'm asking is this ultimately what wins out Business or Art? Would you walk away from a project because you thinks it's under serving a client and will not make them happy. Or do you do as asked and sacrifice and cut back on fixtures risking the conclusion that they won't like what you've done and think of you as less of a professional because you didn't insist on the correct amount from the start. In addition what is more important to you, That the client is satisfied with the results or that you are or both?
