I rarely give phone consultations.
I value my clients too much to do that.
Real-time discourse discourages deep-thinking. You literally don’t have the time.
Give Me a Moment
On the phone we give reflex “in-the-moment” answers. Usually answers we formed or borrowed a long time ago (instead of thinking.)
We fill the space with noise…
But we can do better than “canned” responses.
We just need time.
Let Me Think About That
Clients benefit more when I take the time to contemplate their situation.
To pause, contemplate, and structure better advice.
Reflect, not reflex.
