Beware of those who underestimate you

You know that douchebag at the bar who walks up to your friends and says, “You know, I usually date models….” Yeah, that guy. The client services version of that is, “You know, we’ve got some really big name agencies who’d love to get this job.” Great, go call them. Don’t work for someone who tries to make you feel they’re lowering themselves to work with you, even as a negotiation tactic. Good work comes from mutual respect.
