“X” Man Stands His Ground

You gotta draw the line.  Stand up for yourself.

Peter Dickson did.  Maye we should all take a little lesson from him.

The booming Brit voice on the X-Factor saw a challenge to his job comfort coming, and (with a little help from his agent) put his foot down.

We may not all operate in the rarified air of performance that Mr. Dickson enjoys, but the principle is the same.  Roll over, or push back.

Peter pushed back, and it worked.

See how he “Threatened to Quit the Show”.

In a somewhat related matter.  You may want to review a recent blog by Paul Strikwerda entitled: “Those Bloody Bottom Feeders”

    Thanks for mentioning my blog Dave. My two blog posts on lowballing have reached over 1600 readers and that number’s going up every day. I am heartened by all the positive responses. Ultimately, paying and demanding reasonable rates is a matter of ethics. Quality will be remembered long after the price is forgotten.
