First Impressions Happen on Both Sides of the Table


What if you went into a client discovery meeting asking, “Is this someone I want to work with?”

Not all projects and clients are a good fit, and you can figure that out during the very first conversation you have with a client. Freelancers often approach a prospective client hoping the prospect will like them and want to work with them. What if the tables were turned? In this episode I share about one client discovery meeting where I came away relieved I didn’t get the job, and the kinds of red flags you can look for to decide if your next prospect is a rightful for you.
