Preach brother! There are so many glorious nuggets of freelance client management wisdom in here. I love it. It can take years of experience to recognise the red flags, learn how to manage client expectation, and all that. I know because I’ve been doing this for 17 years and still finding ways to get better at it. You have somehow managed to cover the entire topic quite comprehensively, and with some great humour as well. Bravo. I’m following you for more like this.
