Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Thank you Steph, much appreciation! How your painting going?
Stephany Causey - Over 30 days ago
Very good,Thank you,Janet,I had resent discussion with one of those clients,from off of the Freelance jobs were we apply,I told him my terms in order for me to do example work for him,i told him i do require a deposit for doing example work,even though they already see our skills in our portfolio,Guess what he told me? He said,Why should i pay you and i dont even know you? Lord Of Mercy!,I responded back and told him,Go back to my web pg.were you found,and you will see advices other clients give me about that,I told him,i did a portrait for a client of off this site,without a deposit,simple because he emailed his photo,he saw it from my web pg, and he really liked it,so he paid me,i told him,i would be gamble doing examples without a deposit,and your not simple obligated at all to buy,Janet,Have you ever been through one of those conversation with a client like that before?

Janet i also said,after that,Thank you for time and May God bless you,Janet,that meant i hope not to here from him again,if he didnt want to give a deposit down in order for me to start and to complete his work,in other words he wanted me to come up with some ideals and put them down on paper without a deposit,wasting my time,just have to figure these clients out,ya know?

You did the right thing Steph, If they dont wnat to put something down, with no contract, they are the type that usually will walk , or they want something for nothing. If I feel good about a client and have ten illustrations to do for them, I will complete one, and then they need to come forth with a down payment. If you are just doing one painting...definitely get something up front. Steph, I would say 50% of the clients...anywhere, don't understand the process and expect it it for pennies. Its a process, some go smooth, others will drain you. lol, I still thing a sasquatch book would be awesome in your style! We all go through it dear, you are not the only one!! Blessings!

Yeah,but Janet,When you do one,They will announce on our web site that that your hired,Right? at least thats the way i would do it,Ya Know?
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
No, all my jobs, they have contacted me and it is never
known. I'm incognito! lol
Stephany Causey - Over 30 days ago
Aaah,OK.Its just chances that we take,and doing our best to figure them out,like i did moments ago between getting hired and not getting hired as part of a Scam,Thanks for these tips my friend,you are one in a million,Janet.
