If you haven’t looked closely at the program for this year’s Creative Freelancer Conference, you may not know that illustrator and freelancer extraordinaire, Von Glitschka, will be speaking on “Becoming a Hired Gun” (an excellent reason to take advantage of the early-bird deadline and sign up before May 1).
In the latest episode, this triumvirate takes on PITA (Pain in the A**) clients and shares their strategies for how to deal with them. Here are some of the questions they tackle:
Do you decline work when you realize the client may want lots of extra time? Has it helped you set boundaries? Do you charge an extra fee to cover the costs you think will arise for extra phone calls, meetings or revisions?
What about you? What do you do with those PITA clients? Or do you even take them on at all?
