Put your foot down, you will lose clients.. but you will gain respect.
You will only ever lose clients that you didn't want anyway
If someone asked me, I would tell them I have an initial consult fee XX for meetings. I would also say that this is because the value I provide in a consultation isn't just a 'meet and greet'.
I completely understand relationship building, but there needs to be a level of respect for the fact that you are not having dinner out as friends, it is a professional transaction.
Thank you for this, just what I needed.
On another note, I have noticed when you comment you have little social media icons that people can click on that leads to your social media pages. May I ask how you have done this?
