I was recently hired by my first client. Since I was just starting out, I gave her a heavily discounted rate.
She was thrilled with my work, and rated me five stars on the job platform I’m using… until she started asking for revisions. In the following days, she asked me for more and more changes every day. Nothing was right. She paid me, but then kept demanding change after change and rejected every attempt I made to fix things.
Eventually, I decided to give her a refund for the low amount she paid me.
Me: I’m sorry, I think this isn’t working out. Thank you for this opportunity.
Client: …You’re not very creative, or professional. I was disappointed in your work from the start.
Then why did you give me five stars and tell me I was doing a great job? Jeez…
