Proof there is a lighter side to low pricing.

Jack Knight had posted a blog on the former web site of Freelance Switch and is known for looking at the lighter side. Here are his thoughts on the top 10 signs you may be charging too little for your services.

# 10: Your client mistakes your daily rate for an hourly one.
# 9:   You’ve won every job you’ve ever pitched for.
# 8:   Even though you work 80-hour weeks your income level qualifies you for welfare payments.
# 7:   New clients are always asking what “the catch” is.
# 6:   Clients pay your invoices in cash from their wallet.
# 5:   Competitors regularly send you hate mail.
# 4:   Your old clients don’t bother asking you how much something is going to cost.
# 3:   You never run out of work, yet are subsisting on beans and 2-minute noodles.
# 2:   Your 12-year-old brother earns more spending cash than you flipping burgers.

And the # 1 sign you may be charging too little?

Companies have been calling from India wanting to outsource their work to you.
