I’m an intelligent, hard-working, grown-up woman. I’ve got years of experience in my field, and plenty of reaffirming feedback from those I’ve worked with. So why, every time I get an unscheduled call from a client, do I assume it’s because they want to fire me?
Then there’s the silence after I’ve submitted a quote for a new project. Why haven’t they responded? It must be because I quoted too high. They probably think I’m ridiculous. What was I thinking? They’ll probably just do it themselves, after all, it’s not rocket science.
