“The customer's clients raved about the product produced by the system I built. However, the customer was never able to comprehend that the "flat rate job" proposal only included what was listed on the initial detailed proposal. Although we were able to agree on a number of additional modules (note the budget increased) for new features, he believed that every new feature or concept he had about how the project should work should be included for free. This although he had ZERO software and UI experience. Although he paid invoices quickly, these were only those he approved of - many weeks I found out after the fact I had worked for "free" because he abstractly decided it should have been included in the original proposal with zero rational link.
A quick look at the detailed proposal for this project should allow anyone familiar with software to see that the project proposal was clearly outlined. However, the day the project was accepted the customer proceeded to send over hundreds of pages of additional documentation and requests - all expected within the budget of the original proposal. Although I was able to *almost* succeed in making him happy with dozens of additional free features, I simply had to cut the cord and walk.
I spent over 6 weeks of additional free work trying to make this customer happy -long after he hired staff to exclusively work on this software. His entire company process is nearly automated! My bottom line came when I realized I was getting calls from my mortgage company as he strung me along.
I referred him to the most expensive consulting company I knew and told him he was a luxury I could not afford. ”
