Freebie hunters don’t just ruin their own business by refusing to pay for expert help, they will happily ruin your business too. They will drain your resources, string you along and never admit they are just out to get what they can, for free.
As a business owner, one of the core skills you need to learn is how to tell these time wasters, from those genuinely interested in working with you.
Tip: One thing we know about these serial freebie hunters is that they are extremely attracted to free offers. Those who offer to give their time away for free, (free consultations, free assessments etc) as part of their marketing, need to be especially careful.
It’s not only a really bad idea to attach zero value to your time, you are likely to be a magnet for time wasters too.
