(10:41:23 AM) Teoalida: and now I am earning from IT same sum, but per month
(10:42:30 AM) Teoalida: I am not graduated, well this isn’t a problem. The main problem is that 9 of 10 people who contacted me wanted floor plans for FREE!!!
(10:42:54 AM) Visitor: Yes, I know how that works
(10:42:56 AM) Teoalida: so I am asking if you have a website similar with mine
(10:43:10 AM) Visitor: So you’re not doing architecture anymore?
(10:43:18 AM) Teoalida: because making a website like this + live chat made me filled up by indians wasting my time looking for free services
(10:43:44 AM) Teoalida: the PAYING customers were another problem, most wanted so many revisions for their project that I never enjoyed architecture job
