Have you ever you had to say no to a big-ticket client because you weren’t able to provide for them? Or have you ever been placed in a situation where you have taken on a big-ticket client but didn’t have the services they required?
From time to time leaders are faced with challenges where they are forced to make decisions they aren’t necessarily happy with. This is the norm in any industry and is a common challenge most leaders face when running their own business.
Therefore, I chose to address a question from Laura who expressed concern about whether to take on clients knowing that she may not be the best fit for her. Laura is finding it quite difficult to decide whether to take on a new client or turn the business away knowing that her client would benefit elsewhere.
To answer her question, I came back to a time where I was stuck in a similar situation like this, I knew that benefiting the client was the only way to achieve my business success.
There have come times where I have felt inadequate and lost because I couldn’t provide what was needed for my client. I had to think about the repercussions of what might occur if I made the wrong decision and what I could do to avoid this.
If there has ever come a time where you have felt inadequate or lost because you couldn’t provide for your clients, today’s episode can help you through this!
Today’s episode will provide you with a clear mind-set to help you make those decisions you wish you didn’t have to. If it means that at the end of the day you can make a recommendation for your clients, then that is the first step in the right direction.
As Denis Waitley once said “life is inherently risky, there is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs and this is the risk of doing nothing”. At the end of the day you need to be happy with your business, instead of taking on a client you know you probably shouldn’t, start building relationships with partnering businesses who can complement the work you’re doing.
I would love to hear from you.
