Do you ever get the feeling you're attracting the wrong kinds of clients for your freelance business or agency? Today's guest faces the same question: "how can I turn down clients who aren't a good fit?"
Paul Chris Luke spent his first few years out of college working at an agency doing digital marketing. But then he decided to leave it all behind, sell his house and most of his possessions and move to Cambodia—a place he’d never even been.
After taking a year off to reflect on where his life was headed and finding his savings running out, he eventually felt the tug to get some clients and start working again.
The problem is: when you start freelancing, it can be hard to find the right clients—or better yet—avoid the wrong ones
Now, Paul finds himself wondering how to keep his company small while working with giant brands that want to scale. IN this episode, we answer the question “is it a good idea turn down new clients when your business is so young?"
We also talk about growing slowly on purpose, delegating without losing control, naming your business and lots more.
