You’ve been talking to a new client about a project. The client has been disappointed with other freelancers, seems to like you. Has lots of work. The client asks for a quote.
You want this project, you want this client. So you think very carefully about the fee.
After a lot of head-scratching and figuring, you finally settle on $2100.
You type up the email, send it off to the client, with fingers crossed.
A few hours later, the client replies to the email: “Okay. That sounds good. Let’s get started right away.”
Except you notice that, in your email to the client, where you had meant to type $2100, you actually typed $3100. One thousand dollars more.
What do you do now?
