Unfortunately, in many years of doing this, I have found almost no one who was willing to up the rates if they liked me.

I always looked at these types as 'better than unemployment" and used them for the same amount of time. I usually found they were open because the previous person had done the same thing.

Well, the good news is that this gig actually offers more ($25). I guess
that's what one would expect from "a leading FORTUNE 1000 leader". Those
other leaders, who aren't _leading_ leaders, might be different. :)

I'd say it depends on what your usual rate is, William. If this is anywhere
near what you might consider accepting - say, if your usual rate is $40,
but you'd be willing to take $35, then maybe it might be worth it to you to
start a conversation with them. It's conceivable that if they like you they
will be willing to go up from their starting figure.
