Good Morning, (2/13/2018)
I like to get out in front of train wrecks before they happen. I as most of you who have used me know am a consummate professional. When ladies pay me to do a job , I actually chase ladies down to see normally if there is anything else they need me to do. I truly do give a damn, and I truly take what I do seriously.
My rates and pricing are beyond fair and competitive. Lately I have had a customer who is making me truly begin to feel taken advantage of and somewhat mentally abused and so I think it is time that I address some things.
If a website is released to you , and you release it to the public and it is , in looks so anyone who has seen it says beautiful and perfection and you use said site for almost a month and there are no technical issues, there are no REAL big issues and then you want edits. ( Keep In mind , I am used to doing some edits BUT nothing like what this person is doing) I mean we are talking close to 50-60 edits.. all just aesthetic changes mainly except for a few grammatical errors. So in other words not just photo gallery pics but site pic placement, like background area pics etc. ALL after you said you loved site and used it a month ... NO MORE WILL THIS EVER BE ALLOWED. We release sites 2 days prior to public release just so our customers can see the site and send back edits they want. YOU WILL NO LONGER BE ALLOWED TO WAIT this long and then send more than a few simple edits.
This (even if I charged you 180) is an abuse of our system. Because I guarantee any other web designer would have said NO. Any other web designer would never allow such a thing and if so the def would charge you more than 180.00 for 50-60 edits. I tried to be nice and reasonable and now I have had my limits pushed.
This will no longer be allowed. From now on you have 2 weeks ONLY after site release to come back and want a pretty much full site rework up, or have over 10 changes without being charged $15 per image update or 100 per page update. I cannot have this kind of abuse of my time occurring.
Please be sure you ALL understand this rule and can abide by it.
I as a professional never want to quit on someone or walk away , but to preserve my sanity when a client/customer gets out of hand I will.
Again , It is important you all remember that we built and incredibly beautiful site for this person, it was delivered and it was stunning. There were NO errors except for grammatical but the site itself was beautiful , clean, sleek functional and they used it for a month before all hell broke lose.
So this is not a case of them not getting their product. I just want this documented and on record because I am thinking of walking away from this project as to protect the integrity of my other clients and to protect the integrity of my business.
I hope to work with many of you in the future so I always want to be an open book and and honest book.
Thank you for reading and understanding.

After dealing with what has to have been the worst all around web/assistant client I have had in all my yrs of helping ladies in the industry , I must add the following to my work rules.
1. I do not care if you pay me a million, at no time will I put up with anyones verbal or emotional abuse. Especially when they are not willing to sit down and do the work and make an honest contribution to their own business. I do not tolerate disrespect from anyone.
2. If you do not follow directions OR if you do not do as you , yourself have agreed to do in regard to you web content and in the format requested. THEN ANY MISHAPS are your fault not mine.
3. If after several warnings ,in writing you do NOT supply me and my partner w things we have asked you for / and or you are belligerent, disrespectful or behave like a spoiled child ...and IF it is beyond the 15th of the month..YOU ARE NOT , WILL NOT BE ENTITLED TO ANY REFUND It is up to you to be organized, to have some sense of direction and to do as asked to help your project along.
4. Let me repeat an earlier one again.... I do not care if its a million you have paid me. I have protected more girls, done more for the sex work community than some of you troublemakers ever will. My reputation is solid and I WILL NOT BE TALKED TO CRAZY OR DISRESPECTED by any of you.
Basically be sure you can behave like and adult and be a respectful adult before you hire me. Otherwise it will not work.
Public statement on ongoing issue:
I do not publicize this statement to cause issue to anyone , to embarrass anyone, BUT I MUST PROTECT MY BUSINESS, so I publish this only to serve as public notice to the situation. I hope we can resolve it and things go smoothly but if not I want this on record ahead of time , so that my future clients know where I stand on this.
