While we may all have the best intentions of committing to and serving our clients, sometimes they can create toxic work environments that are counter productive and exhausting. Here are 3 Problem client red flags to look for:
Lack of communication. If you find it difficult to communicate with your client, it might make it challenging to work together. If this is the case, it’s important that you and your client set the standards for communication to have a productive working relationship.
They know everything. If a client always seems to know how to do you’re job, that can be problematic. Why did they hire you in the first place?
They are petty. Sometimes clients can be petty and hostile. Often giving unnecessary criticism. This can strain your working relationship and zap your energy.
Pro tip: You’re allowed to fire toxic clients. Make sure your contracts and agreements allow you to do so.
