A client contacted me for a
commercial for her new business. We met. I spent some time putting together a
proposal to meet her low budget and high expectations. She doesn’t reply.
Four months later she calls me up
and asks me for another meeting and another proposal as she’s rebranded her
business. We meet. She has higher expectations due to her new branding courtesy
of her recently hired “Head
of Marketing” who claims to have worked for decades with companies like
Sony. Together they request a new proposal that still stays with her original
I write up a new proposal and wait.
A month and three attempts to reconnect
via email she finally replies:
for not getting back to you as I was out of the country. I found someone else
to produce the commercial, as it was time sensitive and needed to be completed
