Me: We estimate the project to take about 5-6 months at best
Client: I don’t think I can pay for that much development time, can it be done in two, max three?
Me: You’re already asking me to be the lead developer on the frontend and backend, working with students with no experience. The project is very complicated, I’m not sure if it’s possible.
Client: That reminds me, we also have no project managers available for this project. Could you take that on as well?
