Worth the Trouble?
When one of your clients is a nuisance, sometimes it's better to end the relationship.
How do you know when a client just isn't worth it? It may betime to say goodbye if your client does any of the following:
- Doesn't respect or appreciate your work.
- Makes excessive demands on you or your staff.
- Has unrealistic expectations of what you can do for him orher.
- Isn't willing to pay a fair price for your services.
- Considers you a disposable vendor instead of a valuedpartner.
If you're ready to split, be sure to have a terminationplan. Make the transition as smooth as possible, and maintain aprofessional attitude throughout the process.
