For some ghostwriters, I’m sure the mere mention of “The Client” would encourage a roll of the eyes and a grumble.
Me? I can honestly say that I have enjoyed working with everyone one of my clients. Even those who have been a bit of a challenge to work with. I can say quite honestly that there have only been perhaps 1 or 2 “challenging” clients I’ve worked with so far. The rest have been great. I love working with people who are excited about a project, who question me thoroughly about my process and so forth. Really….I swear! It shows me that they are interested in putting forth the best effort, and that is the only kind to put out there in my mind.
When I have an old client call or email me, it thrills me. Why? Because it means I did a good job for them and they feel comfortable calling or asking questions. It means we connected and created a great product.
It means I lived up to my grandmother’s mantra: “Anything worth doing is worth doing well”
Believe me, if I didn’t do my job, my clients wouldn’t return. And, the fact that I can stay in business doing what I love says one thing: “The Proof is in the Pudding.”
