VII. A Conversation About
Negotiation, Reputation and
“Everybody’s only looking out for themselves. Except us freelancers –
we’re always looking out for each other – at least in my group of people.
Years ago companies treated you with respect – more like family. Today
you could have been at the company for 30-years and they’ll walk in your
office and say you’re fired – tell you to leave immediately – and they
escort you out. In the old days, they’d give you an office for a month.
They sure don’t do that now. I decided that I’d never be loyal to a
company again. I’ll be loyal to the people within it – wherever they go.”
