    I know it is supposed to be a wolf's tail, but it looks like a fox's tail. (probably because of the context of that background rust color)

      Yes good article. The thing I struggle with is showing how my work adds value and will make money or business for my client. I get tunnel vision and think that the benefit is what they can pay me. I feel like I want to make as much as possible and then question if I am being greedy. "The value of hiring me is that I get needed money I am desperate for" is not the appropiate answer. How do you show value? I don't have info of how my work made someone money. That is a good suggestion I need to research so that I can show value and benefit. Working with the decision maker is always the best advice with any freelance job.

      Thanks Viki
      I don't make mistakes. I thought I did once but I was wrong.
