Episode 78: Clients Asking for Resources?

Episode 78: Clients asking for resources?

What do you say when a client asks you for your resources?

Their questions might sound something like this:

“Where did you get the bar stools for my kitchen? My friend wants to buy them!”

“What’s the number of your painter? I need to get my daughter’s bedroom painted!”

Take a deep breath and remember they’re not trying to steal from you, they just don’t understand how your business works or how to ask for what they need. The good news is, you can educate them on that and you’ll probably end up with more business. Everyone wins! 

In this episode, I’m teaching you what to say to clients who ask you to share your resources. It’s actually really simple when you know how to handle it properly—let me help!

Topics We Cover in This Episode: 

  • How to clearly and calmly answer a question about your resources 
  • Taking the emotion out of your reaction so you can create a solution 
  • Things about resources  to include in your letter of agreement 
  • The importance of having clear agreements with your contractors and subcontractors
  • Why you don’t have to give away your intellectual property
  • How to avoid a conflict with a client asking for your resources

May you never be insulted by a client again! Okay, maybe that’s wishful thinking, but I hope this episode at least helps you see that your clients usually don’t mean to insult you, they just don’t always realize when they’re crossing a boundary. There are simple and kind ways to point those boundaries out and stick to them, and you’ll learn some of them in this episode.
