We need to ask ourselves the following questions in order to be sure how much we can get paid for the work and are we really willing to sell our time and expertize for the project:
- What services am I providing?
- How many hours do I think this will take me?
- How much is this worth to the client, from a business perspective?
- Does the client have money? How about a business plan?
- Should I charge hourly or by project?
- Is this a one off thing or is there potential for a long term relationship?
- How busy am I? Do I need this job? Do I want it?
- Do I respect the client and their cause?
