Depending on your client and project, it might actually make sense sometimes to not be involved in a certain assignment. Not every single offer that comes your way is necessarily the best. Almost always your gut is giving you the right signals. But listening to it is usually not what we do now, do we? I just got off a hell of a project today and boy was it a whirlwind! I am actually relieved to not be working on it any more even though it means a setback to my earnings. From the start I felt like I was bending backward with the hope that this could work into something pretty big, and the more I got swallowed into it. But the quality of copy to start with was quite horrendous, and then the quality of work expected from it was simply unacceptable. After trying very hard to keep it going, it ultimately boiled down to the quality of life I want being a freelance business owner and if this job fit that picture. Clearly not and so it was farewell. Have you had a similar situation cross your path?
