A friend of mine told me some wise words: when you sell yourself short, your communicating to your clients that they should expect you to be cheap consistently. When you go ahead and change any little thing, expect some kind of resistance if you haven't lost them already. I really hope I didn't lose them!

My regular client takes issue with the fact that I've made it a new policy to take deposits before events. Now, he's got a pretty expensive palette; food cost for this guy has reached about $700 for 10 people. That's my money being spent, and interest charged to my credit card. We'll see how he responds when I start charging tax.
