Remember last week when we posted about that “you’re hurting the industry” Craig’s List post?

10. People like me should NOT stop looking for up-and-coming, hungry talent that will work cheap JUST BECAUSE you want to make more money.
9. If your work was constantly amazing your clients and bringing them an exceptional value, you would have repeat business and referrals to keep you busy for a lifetimeâ€¦
8. You’re right about how difficult it is to find someone that actually has talent and does a good job. That’s exactly why we NEED to see your ideas about the project before we pay you. We’ve been disappointed by your competitors too many times to make a commitment.
