If your current clients are taking up so much of your time and effort that business growth is not a feasible goal, then it is time to let those clients go. Sometimes these are friends or long-term clients with whom you have certain loyalties. However, if your business with them is ultimately interfering with your interests, you may want to re-evaluate your relationship with them. If you happen to be doing business with a respected firm, you may find yourself in a similar situation. However, many times the seductive appeal of a distinguished name on your client list is not worth more than the profits you could be making elsewhere.
