Takeaway: Managing multiple projects for multiple clients requires strong organizational skills, clear communication, and disciple. Seven key items to keep in mind are: Set the right expectation; sort projects by client; organize files and folders by client; track time spent on each client; schedule client meetings, project milestones, and tasks on your calendar; schedule the next day’s agenda before going to bed; and say ‘no’ when necessary. While none of these are earth shatteringly insightful, the combination of mindset and process makes it easier to juggle the changing priorities of managing multiple projects.
