You Can Fire Your Clients Too

When 2 or more parties combine, we need teamwork. And when the outcome of the teamwork isn’t going as well as we hoped, we’re allowed to make the calls too. Meaning: if the client refuses to pay, doesn’t respect your craft, wants more from less, and/or has unrealistic expectations, then we have a choice to make.

Do we allow this behaviour haunt every desk and chair in the room? Or do we show a way out by saying to the client, “We’re not the ones you were looking for. Maybe you’ll find what you need elsewhere instead.”

In any case, here’s the bottom line: we can choose to spend time investing in relationships we believe matter, or unwillingly commit to just about everybody who comes our way.
