Here is an interesting question to answer. In your current profession, what was the first BIG mistake you made and what did you learn from it?

Mine was one that most photographers and models fall prey to. It was in believing a prospective client when they said “if you help us out on pricing on this first project, there will be a lot of work coming down the road.”

Anytime someone says that, it is nearly guaranteed there will not be more work. And if there is, I learned to give better pricing later down the road, not on the first project.

So what was the first big mistake you made? Put it in the comment section blow.
