It’s amazing to see how people want free advice about themselves and their business. When people contact you for a ‘free’ consultation, direct them towards your articles, ezine, blog or website. Stop giving your services away for free. It can be demoralizing and humiliating. You worked hard for your gift of persuasion. If people want more than your books and articles, offer to charge them a fee for service. Promise them three outcomes or results for this investment. Be clear at the outset what is expected of you, then provide your tangible results. You may get a new client out of it.
