Know Your Worth – A Conversation about Perceived Value, Posted on Facebook by Amanda Zito.

Not long ago, I had a similar experience as what is related here.
A fellow author/proofreader and client wrote me to state that someone who queried her about her services asked, “Do I have to pay you if you don’t find any mistakes?”
I was amazed shocked and disgusted all at one time.
“Of all the nerve!” was all I could think to say!
People, you get what you pay for and if you’re doing a service for someone else by all the Gods do not be afraid to charge for it!
If those seeking out said services aren’t willing to pay for them let them do it themselves and have crappy work to show for it!
This kind of stuff boils my blood!

  1. Thanks, Patty. As the proofreader who received the comment, I didn’t much appreciate it.

    1. Well I guess not. You know, the more I think of it the harder my blood boils. That crap pisses me off. I just don’t like it. It’s disrespectful. That’s why I wrote this up the way I did. I was so glad to see that Claire had posted this. Looks like she and others have a belly full of it too.
