Mations were written to inspire owners of independent creative businesses eg design firms advertising agencies to rethink how their services are bought and sold Anyone who sells ideas or advice will find relevance in their teaching. This may be one of the most important books you will read if you ever pitch anything And I have pitched a lot Sometimes I lose miserably and this book can tell you why But important it is telling you not to pitch at all Much better First off a story it s supposedly a story about what clients do but it s really about what EVERYONE does In Aesop s fable The Frog and the Scorpion the latter approaches the former at the riverbank and asks for a ride across on the frog s back But the frog is not so stupid as to readily agree to this favor for surely once out in the river the scorpion will sting and kill him as scorpions do The scorpion protests that it would be silly for him to kill his carrier as it would ensure his own death from drowning The frog sees the scorpion s logic and agrees to the engagement Once in the middle of the river the scorpion does indeed sting the frog who with his last breath asks the scorpion why he has just killed them both The scorpion replies that he cannot help himself He is a scorpion and it is in his nature to stingYou keep pitching when pitching is just a way to lose and clients keep wanting pitches because they haven t heard anything better They haven t heard a great diagnosis of their problem and possible solution And often we haven t responded to the motivation but to the reuest If a client is concerned about their FUTURE and you are responding to TODAY you will lose I know this And of course there is the one rule that never changes every client reserves the right to change hisher mind until heshe parts with hisher money So even if you win a pitch it makes no difference until the money is spent or the deed is doneAnd when it comes to money or really anything stress is caused by things we can t control or things that are within our control that we are avoiding If we face up to them we can lose the stress Not as easy as it sounds but trueAnd last of all I love this one put discounts in writing Clientspeople will never give you credit for anything unless they know up front you are doing something different for them You may think you are out on a limb doing everything you can to make it happen they won tThis is really a great manifesto that I wish I would have read earlier
