Are You an Irritant In Someone’s Day?

Are You an Irritant In Someone's Day?

What are you doing to respect the time of others by NOT creating loose ends and being an irritation to them?

This is important when it comes to your business.

Clients do not work with people who irritate them by creating more unnecessary work, follow-up and loose ends to deal with.

Colleagues will not work with you either when that’s the case.

If you create more problems and work for them, they will not have any confidence in your ability to keep organized, follow-through and respond to things in a timely manner (or at all) and will not refer anyone to you.

Plus, wasting people’s time is a sin. 😉

When you fail to meet deadlines, when you take days or weeks to respond to messages, when you don’t follow-through as promised or requested, what you are marketing is that you are not competent, professional, capable or reliable.

All of which will lose you business and clients.

Always put your most professional foot forward no matter who you are dealing with. Everyone is making judgments and assessments about your skills, competence and professionalism.

And everyone is a potential referral source.

    Hi Danielle,

    You are right on target with this post. I can’t believe that there are so many businesses on the internet that are completely unprofessional. And if you are looking for clients, you want to project the best image that you possibly can.

    I have even upgraded my writing style. When I go back to read something I’ve put on my website, I’m wondering to myself, who wrote that? I have a motto – be the best you can be and offer your clients the same as you would expect if the situation was reversed.

    That’s my 2 cents!
