I can’t say I’ve experienced anything I’d call sabotage, but there’s definitely been awkwardness sometimes. I’m not saying it’s a solution that will always work, but I’ve tried to squash the awkwardness by finding a way to show I’m not there to threaten their jobs, I’m there to help.
‘Meaningful’ may not be the best word for what I’m trying to say there. It’s my way of trying to emphasise that the projects I work on are often small, but not menial.
I’ve definitely been un-savvy enough to complain about clients publicly when I was starting out. And I promise I’m not just saying that I love client work when I hate it. Doing that might make me savvy, but it’d also make me miserable.
That sounds awful. I hope you’ve got a good contract so you can get your money back. I don’t know how it works where your business is based, but I’d definitely get legal advice.
