Client: Will you read this book on marketing with me?
Me: Uh… I don’t really have the time to do that. I have been working in marketing and design for seven years now and assure you I have the expertise required to do the job. )
Client: I have decided that I am only going to hire someone who wants to read my favorite book about marketing with me. Since you have expressed hesitation in wanting to do that, I am not sure if you are what I am looking for. Even business leaders of multi-million dollar businesses continuously want to learn and grow. I cannot even express enough the angst I feel with having to work with so many freelancers that don’t get my look and feel for my brand. I have lead workshops and talked about business leadership, so this is very important to me.
Me: (running away as fast as I possibly can)
