Last year around this time, I was asked to develop a website for a client because they liked my previous work with their friend. I gave them a 20% discount on a quotation for a project that I estimated would take two weeks. The client quickly showed a preference for very long meetings – each meeting taking 2-3 hours.
Let this be a huge warning sign for you folks!
Eight months later, I am still working on this project. It hasn’t all been bad, but I’ve learned a few things from it that I’ve put into effect elsewhere. For instance, now I only take meetings on Mondays and Fridays.
