You are freelancing to build your funds.

You've been thinking about spinning it off into a service business, small agency or similar.

You've gone from hardly having any clients to more than you can handle at the moment.

You even have potential clients contact you instead of you contacting them.

All is going well.

But, at a certain point you have to step back and re-evaluate your situation.

Are you taking on new clients just for the sake of it?

Are you selling hours just to be able to pay the bills?

Are you making profit just for the sake of making money?

Are you sacrificing your progress, your growth?

Step back.

Take a look at your clients.

Screen them.

Who is stopping you from making real progress?

Ditch them.

Only work with clients who you can grow with.

Even if that means a cut in profits in the short run.

But you'll benefit much more in the long run.

Beat that shiny object syndrome.

Think: "A rising tide lifts all boats" (JFK)

Think: Progress over Profit. (@Andy Black)

P.S.: You cannot let go of the few more $$$?

There are people (@SinisterLex) who walk away from potential 6+ figure deals without regret.

Because their growth was at risk.

All true. If you want to see what it looks like to spend $6,000+ to get punched in the stomach, click that link.

You'll need Insiders membership of course. :punch:
