Sure tell your boss. But no legit place has AAE’s generating estimates and being single handedly responsible for them. Depending on the estimate type, (Labor, Out of Pocket, Traffic AD Id’s), there are usually people who’s job is to generate it for you and or with you. Business Managers and Finance Managers not to mention Producers or Project Managers. How are you in a position where you are solely responsible in the first place as an AAE?? And if you are why wouldn’t you have shared this estimate for approval first with your manager before sharing with client? Trying to understand your plight as you should in tandem try to learn about the checks and balances that are supposed to exist precisely so you don’t have this situation.

Hi folks, I’m in early stages of gaining freelance clients as I look to leave my day job. I’m running into clients that insist on showing collateral to their, “cousin who is into design”, or their “friend” during feedback rounds. This has resulted in personal opinions of non-stakeholders influencing the visual direction of the project - not to mention creates far more work for me. How can I avoid this? I can’t tell people they’re not allowed to ask others opinions - but this is problematic. >>>
