Just read a very interesting article on the Newsweek website

I'm an Artist, But Not the Starving Kind
We have as much training as other professionals. Imagine if we had their business sense, too.

By J. D. Jordan
Newsweek
Sept. 19, 2005 issue - "I could get an art student to do it for $35 and a six-pack." I remember the first time a prospective client said that to try to intimidate me into accepting dramatically reduced fees for Website design services. I was newly self-employed and hungry for work, so I conceded. I delivered a great Web site, but I hated my client for making me work for so little—and myself for not knowing how to get what I deserved.

Article continues on Newsweek website. (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9287027/site/newsweek/)

We should all follow his example.
