Hi Hillary,

I don't understand why anyone would get upset if the bill came in under the estimate. Have you thought about charging on a flat fee basis or on a quoted fee basis? Many clients prefer this method, though the drawback is that you could end up working for free, as it were, if the project exceeds the cap.

Personally, I find that many service providers charge too little for their services, especially when it isn't a cookie cutter type of enterprise.

I've had people curse me out when they get the bill (even with it under the estimated cost I quoted before the project) and I've also been told bluntly to raise my prices because my pricing is too low for the value.
