    Sally is probably good when it comes to general processes, analysis & project management theory. However, when it comes to practical hands-on small-business project management she wasn't cutting it.

    writing a Website detailed specification
    Sally Is professional and skilled individual and I am really impressed with her work. She also has a good personality and easy to work with. However, her expectation of the size of the job and my expectation were not really in sync. I guess the deliverable and number of revisions were not agreed upon in advance which is probably my mistake. I still recommend to hire her provided you know exactly what you want and agree on deliverable in advance. Other wise, hourly rate is probably a better option.
