A potential client wrote me and asked if I would do work on a profit sharing basis. I refused and asked for a fixed rate. He responded:
Client: Reading your last e-mail, I already felt
like I know where you’re going with this – you wanted a fixed fee for the
project. But I believed you were an honest man. I believe your behavior is not
fair and I will not waste my precious time with you any more.
Clearly, I’m the dishonest one here.
