Turning Down Work

Turning Down Work

Turning down work? Why would you ever do such a thing? Well, there are a multitude of legitimate reasons for not taking on a new client, project or fulltime job. Maybe you get a bad feeling from the client, don’t agree with the project goals, or maybe it just isn’t a good fit for whatever reason.

On this episode, the gang waxes philosophical on such reasons, pulling from their own varied experiences. We also tackle a new listener question about whether using WordPress is “cheating.”

Do you have any good stories of a time when you chose to turn down a job? What were the circumstances and how did you handle it? Tell your story in the comments section below!

Turning down work is hard to do. Sometimes you even have to fire a client.
