Mutual Respect In Business

I am a supplier of service. A client is a requester of service. I provide service for remuneration. A client provides remuneration for service.

In this, we are exchanging value. A barter, if you will. It means, we are peers and deserving of peer status.

Treat a client well and build a strong relationship of trust and respect.

What do you do if a client begins to treat you like $#!+? What if they want a master-servant relationship instead?

If that happens, and no amount of effort or goodwill brings you back to peer, then excuse yourself and find someone else to work with.

No amount of money should be worth your pride.

Therefore, do your best to build yourself to a position where you can choose your client instead of just the other way around.
