What to do if they say: “I Can’t Afford You”

You’re in a great conversation with a potential client, and it’s clear that they want to hire you. However, when you start speaking about the various costs, their excitement sinks a little bit, and they say: “I can’t afford you.”

Instead of letting the conversation fizzle out, there are actually several powerful questions that you can ask your potential client. These questions are all meant to assist them in finding or creating the money to hire you.

*And, these ideas aren’t pushy at all (because you should never force someone to work with you.)
