i tried to search the forums for this, but only found threads that are several years old.
The question is: can i reject buyers?
Working with customers is like being in a relationship - that’s probably why they call it a business relationship. So, there are a lot of good reasons why it might not fit. And selecting the right customers is a very important part of doing business. Or as Brian Tracy would say: The ability to say no is one of the most important parts of a successful business.
So, usually i take an extended time to talk to potential customers to get a feel of who they are, what they are looking for and if we make a good team. If the answer is yes, i am their best worker. If the answer is no, i am happy to forward them to people who are better fitting than me or show them alternative options.
