Stop having hard conversations with clients over email. I know it’s easier to hide behind your computer with well-thought-out emails about processes and why they should just listen to you because that’s why they hired you in the first place. It’s trendy for us to say all clients are crazy, and in some cases that might be true. The point is that solutions come from actual conversations. Be it a phone call, a Skype chat, or face-to-face. If you are trying to reassure your clients that you have their best interest in mind, pick up the phone and tell them so.
