I've been thinking about pricing for a few days and some encounters I've had with clients in the past. I've had instances where clients try to dictate my pricing by manipulation, bartering, or general whining about how broke they are. -just a thought to share with everyone during this season of scrambling and quoting. If you allow the client to dictate pricing, you are allowing the client to pigeon-hole you into the quality / standard of life they think you are worthy of living. I've chosen to control my own destiny through self-employment, therefore, I will not compromise my career choice by allowing others to decide my financial worthiness.
