  1. Thanks for including a link to my latest post from The Freelance Pinoy.

    I’d just like to clarify though that “Get Yourself Kicked Out of the Project in 5 Easy Steps” isn’t meant to teach freelancers how to get out of a project in this manner. Not at all. It’s actually a satire piece that pokes fun yet tells the reader that they should do the opposite if they want clients to keep and continue hiring them.

  2. Thanks for the clarification and have made the correction. I enjoyed your article too much, think I lost myself a bit with it…

  3. No problem, Matt, and thank you very much! I thought it would be fun to tackle the topic in the other direction. Glad you liked it. ;)

    Thanks again for the mention!
