I’d make a lot more money if I accepted every project on the table.
But there’d be consequences:
- Each project would get less of my attention
- The quality of my work would suffer
- Client-satisfaction would decrease
- I’d receive less future offers of work
It’d be a short-term gain for a long-term loss.

So because I often say “no” to potential clients, I’m placing more value on my time, building a stronger foundation for my business, and the clients I do work with receive a higher quality of service.
Don’t feel that you need to say “yes” to every inquiry that comes your way.
It pays to say “no.”
