Merlin Mann on Budgets

I’ve written before on budgets. So has Mike Monteiro over at Mule. Today, Merlin Mann posted a big piece about the business of being a professional speaker. You should read it. Merlin’s a fun writer with a direct approach. The key quote is this one –

In the best of cases, “we don’t know the budget” people have simply not done their own planning or due diligence, and they should be regarded with extraordinary care and suspicion. Projects have budgets or they aren’t projects.

That last sentence is key.
