I understand that life can be unpredictable, and that’s why I never get upset if you have to cancel, even if it is the day of our scheduled meeting. Actually, I always require a same-day confirmation, just in case something comes up, you happen to forget we have an appointment, or you just get cold feet (it happens!). This way, it is easy for me to make other plans for my day without getting upset or being inconvenienced that your life got in the way of our meeting.
However, expecting me to make myself available with just a couple hours notice? No way. Maybe your day opened up unexpectedly, but I simply don’t have the luxury of sitting around waiting for a phone call or booking form. If I had to wait around for spur of the moment bookings, my life wouldn’t be very happy or productive, and I would have completely moved on from this business by now.
I wear many hats- daughter, sister, student, partner, lover, friend, professional… you get the point. My life is full, and this world is just a tiny piece of it. When you see I am traveling, I am not “touring.” My personal life and outside adventures take me to different cities, and I like to meet some friends while there.?
Occasionally, I can make myself available for a same-day meeting if you let me know in the morning (morning means before noon. That’s actually what morning means). But the truth is, the little bit of free time I have for these extracurricular activities is so limited that it goes quickly. It is not unusual for my schedule to be full days, and occasionally weeks in advance.
If your schedule is always hectic/last minute, then take the time to get prescreened so that screening is already out of the way when you are able to meet. It is nearly impossible to get screened AND booked last minute.
Take the time to plan ahead, and I promise I’ll do my best to make our time together unforgettable.
