Isn’t it interesting how we all have differrent responses for this question?

For me, I find that the person who asks this question is the one who can’t see that the value of the work they want done is equal to the price you are charging.

This could just be a simple case of them having no idea of what’s involved and believing it’s a ‘low-cost’ job. In that case – maybe they could do it for themselves and save the money.

Sometimes I have customers who queried my price at $145 – but at the end of the session told me that I’m too cheap and should be charging more. Initially they didn’t see the value in what I could do for them.

Perhaps you could ask this – ” If your boss thought that you weren’t worth what he was paying you – would you work for less money?”
