    It's a test.

    To see if you can play with the big boys.

    You can only be a Padawan for so long before your trials begin.

    If you do this, the smaller clients would be like collecting Mini-Cons over Masterpiece figures.

    You are not 'screwed,' you have to be let off the training wheels some time.

    'Screwed' is being fired at Christmastime with three kids and no money for rent/mortgage or food and having to answer 'is Santa going to come?'. Or not being able to get out of the way of a natural disaster...

    Get prepared up the ying-yang, go in there and apologize for the mistake, and then get the shit done.

    Plan ahead and remember that even million dollar companies are made up of people.
    If you know what you're saying is true, then try not to get intimidated just because there are 'bigger players' present.

    Going in with this attitude your going to fail, let's start with that.

    So you know some facts and some mistakes.

    Acknowledge everything and start talking to your clients.

    It'd be the same advice, go in there and own the room.

    Old saying my Dad used and is so true.

    This man is offering you some very good advice and you really should listen to him.

    Exactly, I would start by having a revision of the report at the meeting and if you have the burn the midnight oil to see to it personally then do it.

    Well I don't want to be that guy, but this isn't always strictly true.

    I think about sex a lot (proper planning) and practice by myself all the time and it hasn't appreciably improved my performance.

    What?
