My Time IS Valuable....Why Don't People Get This?!
I'm a very busy person. I schedule my day around my kids, my business and my personal life. Nothing irritates me more than scheduling an "office" meeting/interview only to have the person leave the "room!" After spending nearly 25 minutes helping my prospect into the online virtual office (it usually takes no more than 2 minutes!), and showing my prospect how and where to communicate with me and others in the room, and explaining that I will do a follow-up call directly after our appoinment, my prospect exited the room.... after no more than 5 minutes of listening! It was the very, very beginning of the informational interview process. I tried calling my prospect 2x to see if perhaps they were having technical difficulty, but I was NOT successful! I couldn't even leave a voicemail as the mailbox was full! Argh! I wish people would take my time seriously! I am a mother and a business owner (well...new business owner) and my time is precious!
