Rob and Sara discuss the pros and cons of having clients who are also your friends. Navigating the waters of doing favors versus setting up a client relationship with a friend is tricky and can negatively affect your personal relationships. They discuss the importance of having a discussion about fees, costs, and boundaries at the outset to set expectations early. They also discuss the best solution which is probably to charge regular prices up front and implement a friends and family discount on the end when invoicing.
