Some real-life thoughts about firing customers

Firing your customers can be the most freeing and profitable decision you ever make. If you haven’t seen some of the real life comments in "Have you ever fired a client?", take a look now.

You can usually tell at the outset who’s going to drive you crazy. You should just go with your gut. The people who seem picky and annoying are the ones who always end up being picky and annoying. I’ve been a construction consultant for a while now and it never fails.
