Successful client relationships? Think quality over quantity. #MindfulSocial with @SecretSushi

Secret Sushi on mindful social (2)How do you define a successful consulting business? Is it about the number of clients and jobs you complete or the quality of relationships with the clients you have? As consultants we frequently get hung up in the drive for more business and it’s tempting to take that client who is not a perfect fit rather than wait for the next opportunity. But does the quality of our work suffer? Do we actually make less money than we do if we invest the time in building relationships?

My guest on the Mindful Social Blabcast this week is Adam Helweh, AKA @SecretSushi. Adam and I have had many discussions on this conundrum. A mindful approach would lean toward relationships, naturally, but with teams and family to consider it’s not always the easiet road.

Join us to discuss the question [bctt tweet=”How do you define a successful consulting practice? # of customers OR quality of relationships? #MindfulSocial” via=”no”] on #MindfulSocial Tuesday, April 5 at 10 AM PT.
