    good rules to live by. I think the other time is when, on a larger biz dev relationship, when the numbers don’t add up and the customer won’t renegotiate. Win/lose business relationships = short lived businesses.

    Although it’s never easy to let a client go, it’s much easier to let them go (under rare and extreme circumstances) than to see a superstar teammate demoralized and stressed for weeks or months on end, and possibly leave themselves. Much easier to find a new customer than to find a truly excellent team member.
