Well, OK...

As I was leaving a computer consulting client's house tonight, he reminded me (as he usually does) to send him a bill. I said I'd wait until we're done with the other visit planned for next week.

"And you don't charge enough," he added. "Charge me more."

He's one of my longest-standing clients... probably the longest-standing client I still actively do consulting for. I never raised his rate from $75/hour to $85/hour when our "base" rate went up. After all, he's paying out of his pocket rather than let his company (a law firm) pay.

I asked him how much I should be charging him. "You're worth at least $100 an hour. I should pay you that."

I think I need more lawyers as clients.
