If you're struggling to manage a client's project and looking for some advice from someone who is in the same boat as you, then this mini-article could really help you in this situation.

But the only condition is that you need to read it multiple times to discover the real depth of it 😉

Lessons #1

Never accept a project just because of money that you and/or your team couldn't handle due to no expertise in a particular field.

Lessons #2

Never take a project from someone who is a short-tempered person and not ready to cooperate, otherwise, you would invite a big headache for yourself down the road while working on the project.

Lessons #3

Always try to understand and discover the expectations of the client even before taking the project and not after accepting it in the first place.

Lessons #4

Keep everything crystal clear with the client about what, how and when exactly you would do whatever you are going to do regarding the project.

Lessons #5

Always create a contract and get signed by the client to protect yourself from any future consequences or disagreements.

Lessons #6

Always analyze 3rd party stuff provided by clients before start working on the project and not after starting it.

Lessons #7

Always ask your client to introduce you to the other vendors involved in the same project you're going to work on, in this way your life would become much easier and you could progress with the project more efficietly.

Lessons #8

Always try to find answers on your own before asking unnecessary questions to the client or they will doubt your expertise and it could hamper your reputation in the long run.

Lessons #9

Never show them any incomplete half-baked works under the projects and always check your work multiple times before sharing with the client because they won't understand your imagination and they will get confused.

Lessons #10

Always keep sharing the progress report of the project with the client as it will help them understand that you are actually working and their project is in the right hands.

Lessons #11

Always stay calm and never argue with the client even if sometimes they get pissed because a serious business would never do that and should know how to deal with the situation in a more calm and polite manner.

Lessons #12

Always try to deliver the project even before the actual deadline as it will help you earn a very good reputation in your industry and people love when they get something before the time. So just SURPRISE The Client!

Lessons #13

Never lose hope and try to find a solution if something goes wrong because nothing is impossible if you're willing to put your effort and use your brain to solve the problem.
