I am not sure if this is in the right area or not, but here goes. I have a client who is a medical professional and travels quite frequently. I really like him personally and professionally; however, there is a problem. Recently, he moved to another country to do an internship. His contract clearly states that after a certain date, the rates and work will need to be negotiated. While I realize that he is homesick for his wife and kids and trying to make an adjustment in a foreign country, we all have issues to some extent. I have extended the contract deadlines three times for him only to have him not meet the deadlines or not communicate that he is running behind. Today, he sends me work that he wants done that has been extended three times with a missed deadline. Should I just refer him to his deadline and inform him that I cannot fulfill this late work without negotiating either a higher fee or an additional fee to his missing three deadlines? Or should I just fulfill the work and tell him that he must accept it carte blanche without any follow-up or revisions made due to his missing three deadlines? I was helping him write an eBook, and I always allow two revisions. He was overall happy with the first revision, but decided to add additional information to the eBook on the second revision. I also reminded him that I was only editing and not revising. I am so confused. What is the best way to handle this client? TIA
