Have you ever been placed in a situation where you had to draw the line with a client who was treating you as more a friend and less of a client?
It can be hard to decide on how to approach a situation when you’re faced with having to draw the line between client and friend. Over time bonds are formed and friendships are made which make it hard to sometimes say no or put your foot down when the going gets tough.
Therefore, I chose to address a question regarding the building of relationships in business from Gary. To answer his question I drew back on a time where I was faced with a very similar situation and where I had to draw the line for a client of mine.
There have been times where I have had to make decisions that I didn’t want to have to make but at the end of the day the success of the business is my main priority. I never want to put my clients last and that has never been a factor but there must be that consistency in your business for you to succeed.
If you have ever been faced with a situation like this where you need to draw the line with your client and aren’t sure how to approach the situation, today’s episode can guide you through it.
Today’s episode will provide you with the guidance you need to take that step and draw the lines for clients like this in your own business.
You may be asking yourself… “how can I draw the line with my clients without tarnishing the relationship of the business?”
As Tony Robins once said, “if you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten”. And he couldn’t be more accurate, if you expect change to occur in your business you need to take the initiative to see the change.
If you want to have a strictly work related relationship with your clients you need to make that clear. If that means sitting down with clients on a regular basis and enforcing that business-driven attitude then that is what you need to do. It’s the small things that make the biggest difference and in Gary’s case this could have taken that stress off her shoulders.
I would love to hear from you.
