[Q&A] Am I Wrong to Turn Down This Client?

10 min

Jun 20, 2023

Today's question comes from Emma Noel, a member of our Facebook Mastermind Group.

She says, "How do I politely turn down a client? I had a Zoom meeting with a potential client, and we left off with me saying I'd sent her a proposal. But since then, I've decided I don't want to work with her anymore. Apparently, she and her husband run two businesses. The client says she knows how to do everything but doesn't have the time, which is why they're hiring me. It sounds like there'll be a pain to work with. And I'd rather not deal with the hassle. So how do I politely say I'm not interested?

Does ROI Always Matter?

57 min

May 25, 2023

When growing your business, should you worry about getting a positive ROI on every penny you spend?

It’s an interesting question for me while talking with today’s guest, Sarah.

Sarah started her own agency just 5 months ago. And while she’s been able to get hourly contractors on board quickly to help with creative work, she’s having difficulty finding the right people to help with administrative work.

Even more, she’s not sure how to pay for them. Because in a traditional agency model, everything has to be tied back to billable client hours.

After talking through it, we came up with some good solutions.

[Q&A] How to Invoice for Extra Work

8 min

May 23, 2023

Today's question comes from our free Facebook Mastermind Group.

Laura MCFalls says, "I ended up doing more work than was included in a proposal I sent to a client and forgot to send an updated estimate as promised. So now I'm wondering, do I send an invoice for the entire amount and hope that they're not upset? Or what should I do? For what it's worth, the client was fully aware of how much extra work there was and they were asking for the extra work. And when they went over the original scope, they were aware of it. So nothing was a surprise."

Clay and I will do our best to answer.

On today’s show, we chat with Carey from PodcastFastTrack.com where his business has taken off over the years. Carey is a bit further along in life than many of our guests and is contemplating retirement.

[Q&A] Should Your Client Choose How to Pay?

15 min

May 02, 2023

Today's question comes from our Facebook Mastermind Group (it's completely free. Join +11,000 freelancers and agency builders helping each other).

Jay opened a discussion there that made us come up with the following question:

When a client asks you, "Can I pay you with a cheque?" or "Can I pay you with PayPal?" - How much do you let the client determine how they're going to pay? And how much do you dictate how you get paid in your business?

To submit your question, visit FreelanceToFounder.com/ASK, and we'll feature you on an upcoming episode.
