If you are providing a service to others and ask them to meet you halfway then you are essentially suggesting that the ball be placed back in the middle of the field. Why not allow a client to put the ball inside the penalty box?
I want to do business with you when you talk about an arrangement that provides me with some recognition of what talents I bring and what services you offer. If you are just about creating balance there are plenty of businesses in the world who can resemble that model. If you are willing to standout for what you believe, then you are remarkable.
