    Inspirational ideas! Perfect timing for me – I was preparing for a meeting with an old client regarding his website re-design. I won’t be afraid to admit "yes, it's a lot of money" :-)

    Great meeting and great for me as a writer since I haven't raised rates in a long time. I"m definitely firing one client and raising
    my rates with my favorite all-time client of ten years. Brad
    did a great job.
