Time is money! If you are wasting time because you client is unhelpful or unorganised, make sure you charge them for it. Or ditch them and use your time more wisely on another client. Keeps stress levels down as a bonus!

During the course of the design of the website I received money only for hosting (because he wanted to see it live) and for the domain name. He tried switching the hosting service without contacting me. He has sent messages similar to this during this arrangement and also took over two months to get images for the site. Honestly in order to design the site properly, I asked for them in the beginning. So tell me how you would respond comments like this: I need this web site completed now. It > should not take weeks for > a change to be made. Hours, yes days & weeks no. > I sent you a check a > day or two ago----I want the site moved to > concentric. I want it put > together the way we talked originaly and soon. At > this point I have spent > alot of time on a useless site. PLEASE polish this > site or I will just > abandon the whole idea until I have time over the > winter to learn myself. __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Get Yahoo!
