I was one of those freelancers who tend to accept jobs just to "fill a gap" in my schedule. Even when I was making a lot of money, I always had that feeling that I was not working enough.
I felt that there was always more I could do. And the more I will do, the more significant success will be.
That extra time that I had, I was spending on working with all the possible projects. The intention was to make more money. "Because the harder you work, the more you get" - that's what I thought.
All of that hard work led me to burnout and depression. All because I was taking any jobs and any clients to make some extra money.
As I reflected on those hard times, I realized that the "extra time" I had would better be spent networking to find an ideal client instead of dealing with the headache that problematic clients will bring.
From my experience, I have identified a few types of clients I won't work with for all the money in the world. Many folks I've talked to experienced those types of clients, too.
With this article, I want you to be aware of the types of potential clients out there and learn how to avoid working with them.
Because peace of mind is not worth all the money in the world.
Types of clients to avoid
- Poor communicators
- Self-proclaimed "experts"
- Gut feelings
