prospective client

Hello I have a prospective client that wants me to develop a solution for him. I'm not sure how to bill for a database. Any tips you can offer to me. I'll be meeting with this client on this Monday.

RE: prospective client

What is your time worth to you?  
Think about that, and multiply by two.

If, upon hearing your figure, he cringes,
Trim a little green from around the fringes.

Tell him it's a discount, prove your wile,
At the end of the job you both can smile.
