I can’t tell you how many times I wished I wouldn’t have taken on a certain client. Some of these clients have made my life miserable. I’m always Mr. Positive and I’ve bought into the ‘client is always right’ mentality, but have learned this isn’t true.
The client might always be right, but it might not always be the right client for you.
Let me say this again: not every potential prospect is for you.
So how do you fire clients that SUCK the life out of you??
You know that funny little feeling you get when you’re in negotiations, and it just doesn’t feel right? You know that tug at your heart that tells you that this could end up disastrous?
That’s the FORCE within you…the Holy Spirit…telling you to walk away.
Do you have the FAITH to trust that by walking away from this prospect, you can walk into another prospect that is the one God wants you to do business with…a prospect that will take 1/2 your time and pay you twice as much your worth? Do you have that kind of faith yet? You can!
The spirit works for picking employees, choosing vendors, negotiating with contractors, forming partnerships, and acquiring clients. God wants to guide His Godpreneurs to the people He wants you to work with.
“Trust in the LORD with all our heart and lean not on your own understanding . . . and he will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5,6).
So how do you fire clients? You dont hire them from the start! It’s that simple. Listen to the force within you more during the beginning than ever before.
God has equipped us with such a great power through this FORCE that guides us. God the Holy Spirit, comes to live within the hearts of all entrepreneurs when they are baptized. The Spirit is power from God for thinking of business solutions, saying the right things to your team or clients, and doing things that are pleasing to God (your boss).
Every morning I wake up and ask myself to be receptive to the spirit. The Spirit brings me God’s wisdom from heaven through morning bible reading, meditation and prayer.
More powerful than anything we could do on our own, the Spirit brings us entrepreneurs God’s power to act on what we know.
