via “In particular, working with him (…) he is one of the most
professional people I’ve ever worked with. In the sense that, he
thought through all of the formal relationship between a client and a
professional such as himself. Obviously, very deep thoughts about this
and, therefore he had very clear conclusions about what the
relationship meant to both parties and how it should be conducted.
For example, I asked him if he would come up with a few options. And
he said ‘No, I will solve your problem for you, and you’ll pay me. And
you don’t have to use the solution. If you want options, go talk to
other people. But I’ll solve your problem for you the best way I know
how, and you use it or not, that’s up to you, you’re the client, but
you’ll pay me’.
