Every client wants to feel like they’re a Superstar and receive Red Carpet Treatment first time, every time and let’s be honest we all do. Sometimes this can be hard, how many times have you been with a client and the phone rings, you want to give your client the Superstar treatment but in the back of your mind you are thinking, “should I answer it should I let it ring, what if it is a new client”. While you are playing tug of war with your thoughts, you have completely lost focus on your client, and trust me they know it and the phone stops ringing and they don’t leave a message. SO FRUSTRATING.
If you knew Kim Kardashian or Ryan Gosling was calling you to book in to get a cut and color or needed their pipes fixing there is no way you would not answer the call, even if you didn’t like them you would still want to speak to a Superstar. However, your are either with a client, not working or hands have who knows what all over them and you just can’t answer the phone, you may have just lost the opportunity to speak to a Superstar.
