Letting Go of a Less-Than-Ideal Client, with Beth Stern
By now, you probably have an idea of how to find YOUR people. There's a checklist your probably run through in your mind:
Do they energize me?
Is our relationship synergistic?
Is it a win-win relationship?
Do they give as much as they take?
Does my message resonate with them? (And vice versa?)
This is a GREAT way to find your people... but how do you know when you're with someone who is not your person? It could be a client, or it could even be a friend or acquaintance. And every so often, you'll meet someone who feels like they check the boxes, but over time something feels off.
That's a good indicator that you aren't working with an ideal person. So how do you identify these people more quickly? How do you let them go, and make a clean break? Furthermore... WHY should you let them go at all?
Today, I'm talking with Beth Stern, who shares her own experience with a person who was less than ideal... and letting them go.
