Your project was going along quite well and then one day things just went crazy. Or maybe things were pretty bad off right from the start, a fact you realized as soon as you landed the project, and now you feel stuck with a client who constantly complains, keeps changing his mind, and is never satisfied.
Whether the bump in the road cropped up suddenly or the discontent has been brewing all along, managing a project where you and the client are at odds can be frustrating for both parties. And, unfortunately, such occurrences can be a fact of life when you run a service business, especially one built on creativity and subjectivity like a writing business. If you’re in business long enough, you’re bound to run across such a situation. But fortunately, those situations can be few and far in between, when you know what to look for.
