Yoga Database- hi John, I was really disappointed to get your message today, and I understand you are quite busy, and respect the fact that you need to decline some work for QA purposes.
Wanted to let you know that we are not in a big rush for the completion of this project- up to 3 months- as we are working on other items in parallel. Wanted to see if you will still consider this project as we were quite happy with your profile and experience!
I'm currently going back to the other people on the short list to see if they can provide a sample based on our template. But I would still prefer to work with you! So let me know if you think this could be feasible considering your workload.
