I want to try a little experiment with you all. If you own a smartphone (and you should), pick it up, and go to your phone’s application store (Blackberry App World, Google Play, Apple’s App Store, etc).

Adjusting Your Rates

There comes a time in any business, where circumstances will arise that will warrant you making a change to what you’re charging your clients.
