I accepted a phone call today (even while on vacation) from a potential client; one that would not net me much money and could potentially cost me a lot of business because my customers would have to be moved around – not leaving much time for them. I tried very hard to explain my circumstances and know I disappointed this woman that it would not be financially beneficial for me to accept this client.
I really do hate to disappoint anyone, but this business is for profit – even though I would totally do the work for free if I was a wealthy kind of girl! Unfortunately for everyone involved, I am not.
I tried to broach the topic gently and explain my personal standing in the situation. I know that this nice woman was listening, but that she was not happy. I really hate to be the individual to cause anyone unhappiness! My entire life is about respect and dignity thus my motto ‘With Age Comes Respect.’
I certainly hope that I can help find a replacement for that is just how I am. My heart breaks that I do not have enough time to help everyone. I would if I could, but I can’t and I am so sorry about that! I just have to accept that this happened for a reason and get on with it but I do hate to disappoint!
