Refusing Business-!

BusinessIt was very odd and it’s happening more and more: I needed to turn down business. The offer on the table involved semi-realistic folks with semi-unrealistic expectations. I had to face the difficult decision that it would most likely be in all of our best interests to not work together.

Money down the drain, or off the table.

Now you see it, now you don’t.

I felt good about turning down the guy who might not have possessed the best grasp of the situation and what I might do for him.

But still.

He was bringing along a group of nine other clients with him. And I needed to say: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no and no.turndown

Not easy.

In the final analysis, I explained and left the decision in their court. While sort-of making the decision for them.


Sometimes we need to do adult things, don’t we?  Honesty is the best policy, right?

Have you ever turned down business?
