Client Management For Nice People: Jaw-dropping client experiences (and how they changed us.)

Even if everyone has horror stories to tell, no one likes to talk about the pain they’ve been through, even less if it’s related to their work life. Client Horror Stories is the place where everyone who has a story to tell, and lessons to share from it, is welcome, regardless of their job, age, and industry.

Our guests are a compilation of very brave and passionate people who’ve decided to sit back and have an open-hearted conversation about the worst clients they’ve had in their careers. And of course, the possibility of having other people learn from their mistakes just as they did is a great plus.
