“Breaking up is hard to do.”

Sometimes it’s better to cut your losses than hold on to someone who is going to waste your time. And no, this isn’t dating advice. Instead, I have some insight on crappy clients — how to handle them. Although, now that I think about it, maybe it’s more like a Kenny Rogers song than that old Neil Sedaka tune.
Are there times when it’s ok to dump your clients?
The short answer: YES!
But let’s break this down…
There is probably a myriad of reasons you put up with crappy clients but I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to. There are systems and practices that you can put into place to help you avoid crappy clients. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
You want to know if you should break up with a bad client. It really comes down to where you are at financially. No one knows your budget better than you. You have to consider the probability, timeline, and worth of this potential transaction.
At some point in your career (likely early-on), you will have to deal with crappy clients. There is nothing better than a terrible client to motivate you to grow a sphere of people who love doing business with you and who won’t waste your time.
Like I always say, “Generate so you don’t have to tolerate!”
