Client requests a project for a website, with certain specific functions. It was early in my career.
Me: It’s fine, let me generate the proposal, send you the quote and we generate the concepts of what the site would look like.
Client: Ok, look, the truth is that I cannot pay you for a project like this, because you are starting, but help me to do it and it will help you so that you have more work to show and thus I will help you to give yourself more notoriety.
Needless to say, he was no longer my client in any type of project.
