6. Avoid client crisis

Clients are good for business but handling all of them at once is inviting problems. As all clients have the tendency to be the most important one and if you are not able to address to any one of them then you are losing on them.Rather having few clients and working on the project more effectively is safe and effective .This will execute the project on time and here you are looking for another project .But if you hassle over one client you are losing on a lot of them . So watch when you are handling on clients take them with ease .
