Today on TBOA, Rochelle and I ask the question:
How do you know when to say yes and when to say no?
Here’s a link to the episode:
Mile markers for when you want to say yes or no
Knowing the difference between opportunity and distraction
Creating a strategy for choosing yes or no
How saying yes to the wrong things can spiral
Outsourcing when you need to say no
Recognizing the kinds of people you want to say yes to
Recognizing what is and isn’t a good fit
The effect of maximizing productive yeses
“Without a strategy for your business, there’s no way to distinguish an opportunity from a distraction.” –JS
“A ’Yes’ can spiral into a whole bunch of unexpected work and distractions.” –JS
“You don’t want a client nitpicking everything you’re doing.” –RM
“It’s always easier to say yes to somebody who’s got a track record.” –RM
