A client called me yesterday that the cheque had matured and asked for my account details. Thereafter, he mentioned how much he would be transferring to my account. I couldn’t agree on the said amount immediately but said I would get back to him with the account details.
I re-examined the proposal and found out that more could be done to what he proposed to give. As a freelancer, also having another techie as a member of the team who wanted to play the major role but lacked pleasing personality, i had to settle mine alone.
He wouldn’t shift ground after all plead, persuasion and reconsideration. Then I gave up and we ended the conversation in a good mood (both of us pretending no doubt).
Well, it was not the first time when it comes to projects like that, I have learnt to accept things like that and live on.
Also, a resounding lesson is to be able to maintain a position at commencement of any contract and stand by it.
A true biz man never shifts his ground or eats his words. Right???
