How Consultants Can Make Sure They Get Paid

The biggest hazard in the life of an independent consultant or freelancer is the likelihood that at some point you’ll have a client who won’t or doesn’t pay you. In my 16 years of independence, I have had two clients commit the crime of nonpayment. And just this year, I almost had my third. Having learned from the first two, the last one didn’t end badly—it ended up with the final check. Here’s why.

3 Rules to Help You Declutter Your Career

As a product manager, my job is as much about deciding what features not to put in a product as it is about what features to add. I might even venture to say it’s sometimes more about what not to put in, or — dare I say it aloud — about what to take out. Stakeholders will bristle when their pet feature is headed for the chopping block, but product managers have to press on, because the simplest and most elegant solutions are often the most powerful. The same goes for your career.

You, too, are a product manager. It may not be your actual job title, but you are the architect and manager of your career. And the last thing you want is a 60% bounce rate on your professional endeavors. Here are three rules of product management to apply to your own career.

Sooner or later, you’re going to be laid off. Not because you’re not working hard enough, not because you’re not staying late enough, and not because you don’t do great things for your company and your team. You’re going to be laid off because rapid growth and equally rapid contraction is the new norm for businesses, especially those in the digital world. You can’t prevent it, but you can see it coming.
