James Malinchak Shows How Speakers and Coaches Can Deal with Difficult Clients
LAS VEGAS, Aug. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Motivational business keynote speaker James Malinchak has contrarian advice for speakers and coaches: The client is not always right, says Malinchak, who teaches speakers how to build their business at http://www.BigMoneySpeaker.com.
"I am grateful for my amazing clients. However, there always seems to be one client that drives you crazy. They are irritating, annoying, whiney, complainers who are never happy. If they drain you of energy, then you do not have to work with them," he said.
"After you release them, you will feel an immediate sense of relief. Here's another benefit: You will start to attract the right customers," he said.
"This is your life and your business. You have the right to run your business the way you want to run it. You do not have to cater to every whim of people who are a pain in the rear. These people are not worth your valuable time and energy," he said.
Here are ways to ensure you do not attract painful clients:
- Write the expectations for the kind of clients you want.
- Let clients know the best ways to work with you.
- Set ground rules so clients know how and when to contact you.
- Be aware of your pet peeves so you don't attract clients who have those characteristics.
- Do not work with anyone who irritates you or wastes your time.
"Being clear upfront makes it easy for clients who are easy to work with and who want to be coached," he said. "I took control of my life and my business by releasing difficult clients."
