My Favorite tip…

Following on from Lynda’s post, my favorite out of the 140 tips is:

Tip 13: Dump clients who don’t pay their bills and/or don’t follow your advice

If you are a consultant or a trainer, dump clients who don’t pay their bills and/or don’t follow your advice. Send them to your competition. Let deadbeat clients bankrupt your competitors and blame them for failing to follow your advice.

You go to the cardiologist, and he tells you to lose 10 kilos, give up smoking and get more exercise. You don’t follow his advice and you end up dying of a cardiac infarction. Who is responsible?

Clients who don’t follow your advice are a danger to your reputation. Avoid them like the plague.
—Dr. Paul D. Giammalvo

Fortunately we rarely have this problem in our client base. To discover your favourite tip you will need to visit Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Lessons-Learned-Project-Management-Words/dp/1456357581
