Roy has never been shy about recommending that I raise my hourly rates. He insisted that clients would not react negatively. I listened to the advice and kept my fingers crossed. Boy, was he was right. One client remarked, "Over due. You're a great value." Another client after receiving the notice said nothing about the increase and only remarked, "We have a big project coming up in January so we'll be keeping you plenty busy." Hindsight is 20/20 but I wish I had worked with Roy earlier.
