I had a client (potential client) schedule a call. We agreed on the time. However they did not show up for the call. This time was blocked out on my schedule which means it then becomes unavailable for other clients. I think it would be fair if someone schedules a call and doesn't show that the experts are compensated for their time. Time is money!
While I understand your frustration at this situation I wouldn’t expect to be compensated for services I had not yet provided. Maybe something happened beyond the prospect’s control. Think medical or emergency. We should also remember while we are here providing value without the clients paying the fees this platform doesn’t exist. Hopefully the next call goes much better for you!!
