Waiting on the call

Waiting on the call from the client or pending customer can be frustrating and stressful. You make an appointment with your prospective client, or respond to a call from the potential customer, and give your very best resume of yourself and your business, and outline in detail what the costs will be, and they look at you and say, "I have to think about this further.

Then you ask the prospective customer, when can I expect your decision, and they tell you, I will call you, or if you are working through an attorney and their client is the prospective client, and they tell you, "I will have an answer by this date and this time" and that date and time passes by without any call or meeting, What do you do?

Well I have learned to be patient with the attitude, "If it's meant to be it will happen!" You would think that an attorney; a professional by career choice would not ignore another professional by not returning telephone calls, or emails. After all, this is the age of the social media where everyone communicates. But I have learned in the business world egos and rudeness is the "in thing!"

It is important that we all strive for the same goal, "Professionalism." I am not going to keep calling a prospective client if that client doesn't want to retain me as their private investigator. I am not going to continue calling a client if that client doesn't honor the contract by not paying in full at the completion of my investigation. But regardless of all of these issues, I conduct thorough investigations

But I will not wait!
