If a client is sending you emails about up coming work, copy the info out into a new Google doc, titled : Projects Name – Update name
Pate in the words, even link to the Gmail
Then you have a document with evetutihh that needs to be covered. Emails are not missed, and you can strike though as you do the work.
A single document with everything in.
Don’t lie to clients as it’s easy to get caught out. It’s much better to be honest.
If a project is late starting be honest. It allows clients to move on, and easier for you to manage expectations.
