Penny For Your Thoughts But Not Your Services – IMRAN™

…there will always be unappreciative and ungrateful clients in every field….

Some photographer posted in a FaceBook group about a model hurting their feelings by saying the photos they took (including location, hair, makeup) weren’t worth more than $10 each. I think a dozen people commented on that post. 

As I clicked to post my response on the original post it disappeared. Maybe the original poster deleted their post. I’m just sharing my “comment” here for everyone, as there will always be unappreciative and ungrateful clients in every field. 

I wrote: “Most people do not appreciate intangible expertise or subtle specialization or soft services nor put real monetary value on it. 

They’ll pay a plumber $200 for fixing a $100 leaky toilet but will have a heart attack paying $300 for cloud & technology or management consulting advice they hit you up for regarding their million dollar business.  

I haven’t seen the work the original poster did but assuming it was well done I’d say, go with the attitude, “Yes, the photos were worth just $10 each because the ungrateful model wasn’t worth more. 😋

Last Birthday With Abu – IMRAN™

Every time I used to bid adieu to my father I always soaked it all in; time and feelings, sights and sounds, love and lifelong bond. One never knows when it is the last time you meet a loved one.

National Pet Day – IMRAN™

Sometimes birds can fly away, and even return. You can take them back, protect and nurture them again, the best you can. But sometimes you may not have the time or ability to give them all they need. Or, if they show that is not enough, sometimes setting them free is the best way to show your love and kindness.
