So let me ask you a question.
When was the last time you were told something was going to cost, "X" and you requested a way lower rate? Like half off?
When your vet told you your pet's visit cost $100, did you pay? Or haggle?
When your cashier told you your groceries were going to cost $200, did you pay? Or haggle?
When your roofer told you your new roof was going to cost $4000, did you pay? Or haggle?
When your child's coach told you uniforms were going to cost $250, did you pay? Or haggle?
When the airline said your ticket was going to cost you $175, did you pay? Or haggle
When I started my own marketing + copywriting business eight years ago, my reasoning for doing so was purely selfish—I loathed the 8 to 5 grind. And I believed there had to be more to life than working in a windowless box that took far more from me than it gave. Things like...
Walking the dogs on a warm spring afternoon.
Drinking a beer at 3pm.
Traveling more than 2 weeks a year.
