Other is missing... Apr 28, 2018

1. I’m always interested in having new clients and expanding my business.
2. I’m interested in succeeding to run my business as a steady and well-oiled-machine.
3. I’m interested in getting a more constant workflow rather than scaling down the amount of work I do occasionally.
4. I’m not interested in getting out of the business to do something else.

What about "Several of the above"? Apr 28, 2018

I chose the steady business - I think no one really like to have an unsteady business?
But actually, I would very much like to work less (=scaling down) and get the same income, so that implies finding new, better paying clients/services, etc.

None of the above Apr 29, 2018

I'm interested in cultivating clients that pay well and appreciate my work. The more work I get from them, the less pressure on my time and my business. I'm at the point in my career where I want to keep up a steady flow of work but not feel too much pressure.

Expanding and stabilizing May 1, 2018

Although my agenda has been pretty full, with many regular clients, for more than a year, we're always looking for new clients and expansion, since we have no guarantees of holding any client... ever. If I lose any of my top clients, that would be pretty significant in my income, and we know it can happen any time.
