Rewind back a couple of years. I receive a phone call from a former client. They're experiencing an emergency, can I help?
We discuss details. The urgency necessitates I cancel a day with another client. As an outside concern I ask what might happen if their needs change in the next 48 hours? Not a problem comes the reply, we can certainly use your help anyway so we'll book you either way.
Fast forward two days, work is canceled by email and client won't take my call. Ouch!
