If cutting down a feature-set by a 20% can save you a 50% on project cost, why not? • Use some process: I also have had a decent experience working with various variants of Agile.

No unnecessary extension of project scope. No over engineering. I pride myself at the trust and admiration earned from my clients. The long term relationships build this way keeps my freelance endeavor sustainable and satisfying. • Conservative technical approach: I refrain from applying the latest bleeding edge tech to client projects experimentally. Only select mature but modern and well supported tools and technologies. Latest tech comes with significant risks, and can become a liability for client projects. • Communicate and over communicate: I talk to clients proactively, several times a day if needed. And don't wait for the client to come back for updates - use all channels: email, chat and even phone when possible. Its better to err on the side of over-communicating that making mistakes. • Being nice and patient: To team members, clients and all stake holders. Everyone deserves to be explained and listened to with respect. less
