I currently have a client who has anger management issues and our personalities just don't mesh. She is kind of mean, talks down to me and others (very uncomfortable) and is not a pleasure to be around. I have been working on the books for about 4 weeks now (only once a week). I am looking for some suggestions on how to terminate my bookkeeping services. I have done some research and it mentions not to do it over email but I'm afraid my client will come unglued if I do it in person. Any suggestions or sample letters of disengagement would be very much appreciated.
Thank you,
thanset

I have never had to do this myself, but it is not like a breakup, its just a professional separation. I would do something like this over e-mail. I would just say something to the effect of, I do not believe that I am the right provider for your needs. Return any files/information that you have and disconnect from them.

Then, if they call or e-mail, you can choose to answer or not answer as you see fit. No need for negative people in your life or in your business.

Steve,
Thank you for your suggestion. I sent the email today. I kept it very short and to the point.
Thanks,
Terri

I hope it works out for you and your ex-customer doesn't cause any drama.
