    7/2/2014

    As a business owner, one of the hardest things I have had to learn is when it is time to fire a client. I know that I am not the only business owner to face this challenge. The need to find and retain clients is driven by the crucible of those early days when you did not have very many clients — when the business was struggling to survive.
