    Ok, so about a year ago, I started doing some SEO prospecting after reading about Taktical's success.

    In short, I had a very serious job in another country that I was growing sick of, and so decided not to sign the new contract they offered. I realized that I needed to do something else in the meantime because jobs like mine don't exactly grow on trees.

    Anyway, within a couple weeks of prospecting, I'd signed two contracts, which virtually replaced my income in my former job. The first company stuck with me for 6 months and I'd had some tremendous success...from nowhere to page 1 for about a dozen keywords (they're still there!), but I was priced way higher than the current market, and they said 'we've got a better price'...no worries, business success is as much about managing overhead as it is increasing revenue.

    The owner of the second company I signed during this time just announced that they are selling, and that the new owners want a lower rate (I've had equally awesome results for them so we're still working through that one).

    While I've had clients come and go since then, these two were my first, and for some reason, I cannot help but feel a bit sad that we're parting ways. I suppose I'm nostalgic, but I'd like to think that I care about my clients, and having got to know them so well, plus the fact that they were my first 'wins', I'll be sad to see them go.

    Just wondering if this feeling resonates with anyone else here?

    I think it would be cool to hear your stories of how you got your first clients and where they are now.
