This month I have re-evaluated my pricing. Several times have tried to increase my rates when I was approached by a new client. I was not always successful, but nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Gentilissimi traduttori,
Sto scrivendo una lettera alla mia cara amica Francesca. Voglio scriverle il mio suddetto parere. Conoscete un detto italiano che esprima qualcosa di simile?
