    Good Idea or Bad Idea? Artwork for Exchange, Barter, or a Friend...

    Good Idea or Bad Idea? Artwork for Exchange, Barter, or a Friend...

    Jules, Rachel, and Stephanie discuss lessons learned with doing business with friends and relatives..


    Jules and Rachel created a website for a friend...that went south real quick...


    Stephanie created a commission for a friend and the friend took advantage and Stephanie took a hard stance of being done...


    Lessons learned:


    Don't turn over the deliverable until you have payment

    Always trust your gut!

    Look for a win-win agreement

    Know your limits

    Outline every detail in writing


    Red Flags to look for:


    Your gut is questioning the situation

    They request too many changes upfront or have too many "visions" of what it should be

    The expectations change


    Strategies to avoid the job:


    Price yourself out of the job

    Don't follow up
