change = backlash

Change is generally not welcome.

Keep this in mind as you establish patterns of interaction, billing, etc. with your clients.

A beaten path develops ruts. After a while, you may get stuck in a rut – and your client may be very comfortable running you over.

So, when you put a boundary up – or try to establish a change in operation, ie: raising rates, not accepting certain types of work, etc.
You may receive a backlash. You might lose the client, for a while or altogether – that depends on how you conduct yourself.

The best remedy here is to set boundaries early. Don’t do anything for a new client that you would not want to do long term.

Even the best clients can become bad ones if you don’t know what works for you long term.

  6. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment
    (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I

  8. Hello there, There’s no doubt that your web site could possibly be
    having browser compatibility problems. When I take a look at
    your site in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Aside from that, fantastic blog!

  13. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post
    seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not
    sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you
    know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Cheers
