I'm PM with a reasonable amount of experience, both in person and remote. This is my first time working as a freelancer and I'm struggling a bit. My main problem is communication I think. My client just ignores everything, because I think he's busy. At the same time I'm getting almost no work from him, and I'm struggling to make any forward progress because he won't even answer yes or no texts. Getting him on the phone is hit or miss as well.
It's especially frustrating because the first few weeks were fairly good, but the last 3 weeks have there has been no tasks, work, or communication from him. I don't know how to handle this. I've tried sending him very specific, single task emails which he rarely responds to. I've tried sending him weekly in review/upcoming emails which he's responded to once. I've tried setting meetings, but he'll just postpone them.
It's just that I'm out of ideas, and I feel like I'm missing something. I was just hoping for a new perspective, advice or anything.
