“Do not squander time for that is the stuff that life is made of” ~ Benjamin Franklin
I was thinking about this the other day. I was meeting someone for a cup of coffee AND to complete a business agreement. But he hadn’t prepared at all for the meeting. All my questions brought no answers about the simplest facts we’d need to conduct business and sign a contract.
Just a chat over coffee can be fun. But that wasn’t the plan. It is what happened (accidentally or maybe deliberately, I couldn’t tell). I came away wondering if the chat over coffee was designed to get my ideas and advice free.
THE TAKEAWAY: Time is precious and valuable. Know your worth before you just give it away. More importantly, people appreciate something more if they have to pay for it.
