Velvet Rope Clients

Admittedly this is a weak blog post - I am posting about another blog, that was posting about a book. However; it has been a very busy few weeks and the other post is really good and gets to a core tenet here at Sentient Services - we do great work, for great people and great companies. Life is too short to work on junk and with not-so-nice people.

We are very fond of saying "We don't have clients, we have friends that happen to pay us money.". And, that is very true. Our "clients" are great friends - we travel the world together (drink tea in Turkey, hike to through the alleys in Hong Kong, beer in Germany), work long hours, create game changing products, and have a lot of fun along the way...good friends + good clients = great times!

Read about what makes great clients and some guidelines on the GetSatisfaction blog. It covers Michael Port's books and philosophy.

The key takeaway:

Do you have your own red velvet rope policy that allows in only the most ideal clients, the ones who energize and inspire you? If you don’t, you will shortly. Why?
First, because when you work with clients you love, you’ll truly enjoy the work you’re doing; you’ll love every minute of it. And when you love every minute of the work you do, you’ll do your best work, which is essential to book yourself solid.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!
