The client report is the most comprehensive and useful tool for helping you sort through the clutter of your life. I’ve had clients report to me very often. They tell me they’re so happy to have found the right home, and that they’re doing it right. That’s because they can’t believe their own “home” isn’t theirs. They’re afraid to move.
We can use the client report to learn what’s new and how to fix it. The client report is a tool to learn what your life has gone so far in some ways. We can find the right ones, and learn how to fix them in as many ways as we can.
Its important to know what you want and how you want to get it. Whether its a new job, a new home, or a new relationship…the client report can help you figure out whats important to you. The client report will help you decide what needs work or what needs fixing.
I can’t stress enough how important it is for us to be proactive. We often get lazy on the client report. Or forget to do something that will help us get what we want. This is when you need to tell us what you want and we need to fix it. This is when you need to make something happen for your client or client to work out.
When I’m working with clients, I ask them a lot of questions. I make sure to get to the bottom of their needs and wants. I ask them how much they want, how much they can afford, and how much they need to know that their clients will know. I ask questions that will help me figure out whats important to them and what I can do to give them that, and thats one of the most difficult things I do.
The reason I ask questions is to figure out what the client needs to do, not to figure out what the client wants. Most clients want to know what I need to do to help them, not what they want. This is the most stressful part of working with clients.
Here’s my suggestion. Tell them that if you want to help them, you need to know that you don’t want to give them problems they don’t want you to. You need to tell them that you don’t like what you don’t have. That they don’t.
So tell them. The way you present the opportunity to help them can make a huge difference in their decision. It really all depends on a lot of factors. So tell them what is most important to you. Explain that when you have this problem, you are the only one that can fix it. You dont have to solve it for them and you dont have to solve it for yourself. You are the only one that can solve it. You are the only one who can fix it for them.
This is an important part of how we do business. We work on different aspects of every client’s business: product, marketing, and support. We work very closely with those various departments to find the best way to solve a problem.
Client reports are one of the most common problems our clients come across. Why? Because when a client comes in with a problem that can’t be fixed, they most likely have a client report in their file. So we need to be able to write a report for them to give to us so we can fix the problem for them.
