Breaking up with a problem client

O.L. writes:

I have been in a branding project with a client for about four months now. I struggle to even write that. I generated dozens of concepts, made tons of revisions, often with two weeks of silence in between, and have had enough. We're supposed to work on a business card project after we finalize the visual identity, but I cannot do it. I have reached my limit. How do I break up with a client? How do I say - thanks for the good times, but I've had enough?

Dealing with potential clients negotiating over prices or offering to pay in exposure

A.B. writes:

I started my business in January and the biggest problem I'm consistently having is negotiating my prices. Far too often, a client comes to me expecting me to work for free (or as they like to call it "exposure"), even though my prices are listed on my website. How do I deal with this? Should I change my rates? What's the best way to determine a fair price point? Thanks so much!
