Client: Help! I have an event in four days and I need two face painters, two balloon twisters, four jugglers, a magician, and a Dora the Explorer! It's an emergency! No one else can help me! Here's my budget...
[four hours of me wrangling talent by phone, text, email, and carrier pigeon, followed by two hours of figuring out logistics]
Me: Okay, I've just spent six hours confirming all the artists you need and I've brought it in under budget. Let me fax you a contract and we'll be ready to go.
Client: Great! Let me get back to you!
[sound of phone not ringing as they never call back again.]
