Jason Jenkins - "I have no idea what the Avid guy charges, but I don't think $150/hr is racing to the bottom. In fact, I've worked long and hard to get up to that."

Very happy to hear that, was afraid you were going to say you were charging something like $25/hr. Stick to your rates, this is hard work and as you know it cost more than money, it cost time! At that rate you can afford the time it takes to do this. I've had clients who have had sticker shock over rates before. So much so, they decided to try it themselves. What they found was, they weren't necessarily paying me for the time I spent working on their project, they were paying me for all the time I've spent learning the craft. They could pay me for an hour at $150, or they could spend 6 hours of their own time figuring out what experience has already taught me. In the end, they're not buying my time, they're buying my experience.

Kudos to getting a good rate!

Kinda like wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt to a Republican debate?
