I Don’t Dance (Don’t Ask Me)

I Don’t Dance (Don’t Ask Me)

At times you’ll be asked dumb questions. Don’t attempt to honor them (or prolong them) with a rational response. Don’t dance to their music. Point out the absurdity and move on. Examples:

• How many firms exactly like ours have you worked with?

That’s not the point, the point is that my clients all achieve great success across all industries.

• What was your education like?

I’m sure like yours, I found it only helped when I applied it to the real world successfully.

• What do you think you can do for me?

I don’t know, what you think you need to have done?

• At your age do you think you can take on such a project?

That’s an odd question that could even be deemed illegal. Why is it important to you?

• What if you die during the project?

I’m Catholic so I imagine I’d go to heaven. What about you?

    I provide solutions to clients who ask me who else has done it. Its like a sick person asking a doctor who got cured from this prescribed medicine!!
