Over the years, I have learned very valuable lessons about doing business. I pay great attention to what I hear and the advice that I get from successful industry people and I understand the rules to succeed. Below are some of the common things I have heard my clients point out when it comes to what turns them off the most when doing business and what will make them not support someone.
Sense of Entitlement
Never treat a client like they are obligated to support you. This will most likely piss them off and make them resentful towards you. Even if you have done favors for them in the past they don’t have to do anything for you now, the budgets are in their hands and they do what they want to do with it. (click NEXT for next segment)

You are not putting them down for any good or legitimate reason outside of the fact that they have what you don’t have. This approach does not make you look like a winner it makes you look like a cry-baby loser and it will push clients further away from what you want them to do. (click NEXT for next segment)
