Have you ever had bad results with a client? Maybe you didn’t hit the goals that were set or get the results the client was hoping for. Maybe you were ghosted by a client or they said no to your proposal. Or maybe you had to break ties when they weren’t ok with your price increase or even worse, maybe they wanted to terminate their contract.
There are many things that can go wrong when working with clients, but it happens to everyone at some point in their business. It has happened to me, which you will hear about in today’s episode.
