“If you’re so smart, how come you’re not rich?”
I really do. When you can pick and choose the clients that you work with it can be a very positive fullfilling experience. When there is mutual respect and understanding, client work is fun. I think there is a lot to be said for having good clients that you enjoy working with.
I’ve certainly been tempted to jump into a life of all affiliate work and try to make a go at it, but I really am not that excited about the hours of solitude that would come with it. I enjoy the online community, and meeting and working with intelligent business people that will help make me sharper should I ever decide to take on my own venture and go for the riches some day.
I’ve heard plenty of affiliates say that they hated client work. For those who are in this camp…was it ALL clients, and if so why? Or do you think you just weren’t working with the RIGHT clients?
Picking the right client / consulting relationship is crucial to a good partnership. Investment and innovation must be balanced information analysis for probable positive business outcome for both parties.
I enjoy spending time speaking to intelligent people that are motivated, successful and who's interests comply with my own. The incentive of a postive relationship, is future positive relationships and not built on failure. The long term strategy of both parties should be expressed and delivered within each conversation. SEO is marketing, tech, design, art, science and more, and it helps me to learn about interesting things from a diverse culture set on nearly a daily basis. Thank you to my clients, and to those who don't like your clients keep working hard and always be grateful to your clients, friends, and partners.
