[Steve Wargo] "Get rid of any client that is not a positive asset to your company."

Bravo, Steve! While each of your ideas are right on the money, this observation is brilliant. It's almost always the hardest one to do but also the most necessary. Get the negative stuff and negative people out of your life as quickly as possible because they're only eating up time you should be spending on stuff that matters, jobs that you will be proud, new business you should be seeking and people you care about.

A great recent example of this have been posts about taking an ex-client to court over a few thousand dollars. What's the actual cost to a business for all the wasted days, sleepless nights and just plain lost mindshare? The answer is almost always CONSIDERABLY more than the disputed few thousands of dollars.

It's hard to push away a paying client even when they are difficult and cause problems. It's also hard to walk away from money you know that you've earned. But it's almost always FAR more important to learn from your mistakes then move on to better things. Preserve your sanity and preserve your attitude by not wasting time on negative stuff.
