I've been self employed for 35+ years. Whenever I'm selling my services, I'm very aware of my clients or future clients. It's a sort of 6th sense that sets off the B.S. meter. I've heard/encountered so much B.S. and will continue this in the future. It's the nature of doing business. Everyone makes themselves out to be the greatest thing since sliced bread or, even when found doing wrong, they're squeeky clean or God's gift. Music has nothing to do with the music business. I'm a verteran of the music business; textile business; furniture business and transportation business. Your eyes should be wide open and know for a fact that, even when you're professional; respectful & courteous, your customers are not. CYA.
