LTS_Tom Thanks for the response. I was thinking along the same lines but then semi-annul or quarterly smaller increments would be more palatable depending on the plan. Hopefully the inflation rate will slow. Had a client tell me that they were surprised I haven’t raised my rates for three years (they pay an annual retainer lump sum plus a discounted hourly rate by the man hour). They were expecting a 5% annual increase. My response was I try to take care of my long term clients plus my costs have not risen except for this year.
After thought: Liked the post about the wire job gone sideways. Lessons learned. Got similar T-shirt, in fact that may make a good T. Good luck and continued good fortune.
