Small vs Big

There are plenty of reasons why small is good and big is bad.

Small (me) tend to cost less and produce more.

Because overhead is smaller, I am able to reduce the hourly fee.

I am more willing to work with you to ensure the project is successful.

If the working relationship is strong, you know I will be willing to do

one more change or work late to get the job done.

And this is a good thing, this is what sets me apart from the big guys.
