“Go online and find some freelancer to design this thing, pronto.”
“Call that designer we used last time. Maria or Marie, whatever.”
“Call Maria, and have her handle all this.”
“I keep reading about this Maria Rossi. See if we could get her for this.”
“I’d recommend Maria Rossi. If you can get her.”
“Oh, we had our branding done by Maria Rossi.”
“Get me someone just like Maria Rossi. Only someone we an afford.”

Another great post, Walt — thank you.
Plenty of fodder in there for individual pondering, a workshop teaser/group session, or — hey, why not — a panel discussion.
As an ancient self-employed professional, I’ve heard all of these statements (in one form or another) in business contexts EXCEPT the last one.
For me, that “get me X but cheaper” is the freelancer’s insecurity talking to herself.
The Lizard Brain letting it rip.
