David, you’re right that this strategy requires you to first identify and only work for good clients. I’ve talked a bit about how to pick out the good from the bad client here. However I should write up a more complete list of red flags to look out for.

I believe a huge factor in freelance success is how you choose clients (and having the luxury of being picky).
