I'm an Architect as well as a Web Designer and I often provide both services to a client, particularly retail clients. I have designed a couple of physical stores for one particular client in the past year, and they are now ready to open a full e-commerce site as well. (Teaching myself PHP/MySql, but that is another subject all together) Anyway, I was recently contacted by another potential client who sells the EXACT same line of merchandise. Building thier physical store is no problem, as it is 100 miles away from my existing client, but what about their web site? Essentially, they will be direct competitors on the web. My gut tells me I should decline the second web job, as my loyalty should lie with my existing client. My wallet on the other hand tells me differently. Any of you ever been in this kind of situation? If so, how did you handle it? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
