So how can you avoid unrewarding clients and projects in the first place? I asked my brilliant Twitter friends for their personal red flags:
@sarahjbray knows it’s time to run when a potential client says, “It should take no time at all!” You’re the business owner, you set the terms of your relationship.
@lisafirke cautions to watch for clients that “can’t afford to pay too much.” Leavebargain hunters to the big boys.
@ericacosminsky suggests avoiding those who push your logistical boundaries, e.g. “If you say you can’t start until Tuesday and they push you to start sooner.”
