Consultant Thursdays: How To Avoid Bad Clients

This article is brutal, but I think all consultants have dealt with some of these scenarios.

I like the tips even better.

Here are some ways you too can avoid bad clients:

  • Thoroughly research your prospective clients before working with them
  • Discuss and outline all project details before accepting a client
  • Be honest with yourself, and don't take on new clients out of desperation
  • Follow your instincts, and don't take on clients that give you a bad feeling
  • Watch out for catch-phrases, under or over communication, and other potential clues of a bad client
