I was hooked and I really wanted to know more. It turns out that Shellie is not just convincing in her pitches; she’s doing a great job at arguing her case in more pressing situations too.
Shellie was freelancing for a client who required her presence in the office. In fact, he was adamant that working from home was not an option. Here’s how Shellie managed to convince this client to agree to remote work.
Last fall, I told my long-term client that he didn’t need me anymore. Didn’t need me in his office every day, that is.
Here’s how I convinced him I could be more effective, work more efficiently, and get more done in less time by working remotely.
Knowing my client was a bit of a skeptic when it came to anyone working remotely, I needed to carefully plan my approach, build my case, and make a slow transition. I’d even heard him utter the words, “if you’re not in the office, how do I know you’re actually working?”
So I knew I had to be persuasive in my approach.
