    “After awarding this project to Bob, I quickly realised that he is an absolute professional, full of integrity and willing to do his utmost to achieve what is asked of him. He was the perfect Freelancer for this project which was messy and complicated due to poor site configuring by someone else. When we both recognised the limits of what he would be able to achieve within the limited budget I set I had no hesitation in asking him for a price to do the necessary re-configuring. A much bigger and more difficult task which, I have no doubt, Bob will be able to complete to my absolute satisfaction.”
