Yes! Add a few zeroes on your invoice as a “rush surcharge” or “expedite fee.” Either you’ll make a buttload of money or your client will magically learn patience.

I'm a waitress, and even though it isn't the same type of job, I've dealt with similar situations. When I have customers who just get there, and they think their food takes a higher priority than the people who have been there. smh. People suck. Lol.

At some point your going to have to explain to him that you have other clients and that adding 50+ pages at the last minute is going to affect to ability to do your other clients work. If you can sub contract it out to someone you trust then explain that's the best you can do otherwise drop him as a client. You don't need all that stress in you life. Also it sound like you need to go on vacation for a week

Sub out your work to somebody else, then tack on the triple overtime cost for last minute big changes and you'll be sipping margaritas on the beach in no time. Now I'm just going to require you to wire me $100 bucks for this consultation fee.

How much is your time really worth? Charge him at least 150% of the normal rate to do the work.

I charge all my clients a "fast turnaround" surcharge. Then if I have to defer other clients' work for an "emergency" job that makes me anxious as hell, at least I'm getting paid for it

Give him a reasonable quote for how long it's going to take, and stick to it. Don't agree to any impossible demands. Don't let him try to force you into anything. Quality takes time.
