And Now...Back to the Drawing Board

So, I was excited to wake up this morning. Not because it's a holiday, but I had an interview scheduled, where I knew the client already wanted to hire me. When I'd mentioned a fee range during our last phone conversation, he didn't blanch or counter-offer. After a couple weeks of scheduling conflicts, it was looking good and ready to go.

Not so.

Friday, he met with his backers for the project, and they are postponing money for two months. Now, he won't have money to pay me until then. Though, he's said to get back in touch with him in a month (which I will -- I like his project and what I'd be doing).
