    and conversely, sometimes you really hit it off.

    i worked for a new client today, she was real happy, talked my ear off, and hired me to do a bunch more stuff for her.

    it's less like work when i'm building relationships.

    I believe that 1 good client is more profitable than 5 names in a ledger of invoices... Over the years I've found good clients, in the oddest of situatins, and in turn, I dropped those who didn't fit into my personal priorities...

    Of course I am more of a solo operator as opposed to the TGCL business model... :)

    Isn't that the truth. That's why I spend most of my time and advertising dollars directed at Eco watering holes. It's so much easier servicing the already convinced. That being said, you do need to take the time to convince.

    I find that the biggest challenge is that of a "MythBreaker" among the believers... None of my best clients were environmental, and though I have converted many, I blew it with some becuz I was green(novice) and made thoroughly incorrect statements... I neve regained credibility... :)
