One response to “10 Reasons When you know it is time to fire your Client”

    This is a great post. I’ve found that often people focus so much on the money being left on the table, that they forget to examine what’s truly at stake over the long term — their reputation. In these types of toxic situations, like you, I’ve found that it is generally impossible to end up with a positive project result. The best outcome you can hope for when it has come to this is to politely walk away, preserve your reputation, and have the client (hopefully) respect your willingness not to continue a project just for the money.

    Unfortunately, most consultants would rather preserve the cashflow than their reputations (and sanity).
