    Let's Talk About Bad Clients!

    Let's Talk About Bad Clients!

    There's this idea in the online space that achieving "success" means only working with amazing, fully aligned, soulmate clients. In reality, the opposite is true. 

    As you grow your business and step into your success,  you'll be working with more and more clients. Therefore, the probability that you will have a few "bad clients" is rather high. In this episode, I offer insights and advice on how we can all better prepare ourselves to manage bad client experiences, learn and grow from them, and make them as positive as possible. 

    SHOWNOTES


    (1:12) Jackie Intro
    (2:33) “The reality is--as business owners--we are going to have bad clients”
    (3:23) “Bad clients are just simply part of having a business. You take the good with the bad”
    (9:45) Big time entrepreneurs having bad clients
    (13:12) Jackie’s bad client experience
    (15:40) Other bad client experiences
    (21:00) Closing comments

Valkk ,

Jackie was reading my mind!

I love that feeling when I'm listening to a podcast and the person is describing what I've been feeling in words I didn't even have for it yet. That was me listening to Jackie's episode on Alignment Activites... loved it!! The image of holding the latte is perfect because it really feels like you're sitting down and having coffee with her. Keep up the good work!

Healthy Beach Girl ,

Inspiring and Empowering.

I love how Jackie hosts a platform to share the inspiratioanl stories of these women. She is a great interviewer and is able to ask questions in a way that helps the listener to relate.
