I usually ask people how they came to find me and what their interest is. If they don’t respond, I don’t accept. I will always check them out first. If it’s someone from my own industry, or perhaps someone who belongs to a discussion group I belong to, then I often do accept and open up a conversation in reply. But if I don’t know them or where they came from, then I do ask.

The latest one told me he was looking for leaders – he’s prospecting for his direct marketing business. I told him as a leader I get prospected for lots of businesses and I hope he understands if I don’t accept his invitation to join his business. :)
