I had a prospective client come in this week with a charming waterfront cottage that she and her partner had remodeled. One of the first things she said after we met was “I was so afraid of calling you as I wasn’t even sure you would even talk to me about such a small project”.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is the stigma that comes with appearing in magazines. Whatever size budget people have, they always feel that it may not be big enoug for a published firm. Being published is a double-edged sword. It gives you visibility, but on the flip side it can make you seem intimidating.
I was thrilled to meet her and to share with her a vision of what this cottage could become. It got me all excited about the possibilities of working together and taking the project to a beautiful conclusion. So you see, we were both happy!
