Creative service providers – do you ever feel like you’re either completely overwhelmed with client work or don’t have enough at once? Successfully crafting my studio’s “project cadence” to a place that fit my lifestyle and vision for Hello June was one of the biggest keys in supporting my reduced-hour workweek and ensuring that I am able to pay myself a consistent salary, regardless of my business’s income.
The benefits are obvious – my clients get my clear mind, my focused strategy, and my 1:1 time, and I get to truly dive deep in each client project and devote all of my creative energy to each and every client in the duration of their project. Layering brand and web design clients together allows me to fully switch on my “brand design brain” for one client while the other gets my “web design brain” (no competition there!)
There’s no one right or wrong way to go when it comes to planning out how many clients you want to work with at a time – it truly depends on your energy, the size of your team, your income goals/markers you need to hit, and how many hours/week you want to work.
I’m curious – how many clients do you like to work with at once? Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to have a good old-fashioned email exchange about this!
