Hi ChrisÂI think that you made the right choice.Â
This episode reminds me of a prospect who wanted a new admin manual, a user guide, and 5 other technical documents in 7 days to meet their client's deadline.Â
After stiff negotiations, we agreed to the admin manual, the user guide and a start guide in 14 days. Payment upon delivery.Â

Thanks very much, everyone.

Combining and wordsmithing a couple of suggestions, here is what I just
sent:

Thank you for considering me for this project, Jeannie. I'm glad that
you've found a way forward on your urgent documentation need.

I look forward to working with you in the future.


I don't want to slam the door, inasmuch as I remain interested in the
company and its products. I also get on with its project manager and
digital marketing guy.

As we all know, Jeannie could be gone in a month. Or the ongoing
documentation need may be reassigned where it belongs. Or she might realize
very quickly that Woodrow the Woodsman should stick with repairing his
chainsaws.
