I have a contract with a women I work with stating I will not market to clients that are associated with her business. Her company markets and she hires me to then work with the clients. My question is, if a former client from her company reaches out to me on thumbtack (which then I am charged... View More
It is not a good idea to work with this client. You don't indicate whether the client was someone that you worked with (taught) in the past for her.
