I would rather have four quarters than one hundred pennies. Meaning, I would rather see a few regulars who are quality. If I contact you, it is because I am interested. Conversation, and getting to know someone is part of the experience for me. I prefer a safe and clean appointment with individuals who value connections over trying to collect cash and move on to their next client. Passive aggressive and pushy people are a huge turn off as well.
Please do not ask me to loan you money before we even meet. Deposits are one thing, but asking for money to pay your bills is just tacky. I am not a human ATM. Establish a working relationship and go from there.
