    You’ll have to excuse me for being frank >> That sucks!

    I’m suddenly inspired to take a moment of reflection so that I can make sure that I’m not doing something similar to my clients and referral partners. It’s easy to take things for granted…but when we value all that we have and our supporters…well, life just gets that much easier!

    So along these lines, this guy who had been giving me free advice and code for months was amazing. He is generous with many people like that and so helpful on e-mail lists we share.

    Finally I had a project where I could actually pay him to work with me to get the job done faster. He agreed, I gave him access to a staging area, we exchanged some e-mails with project details when things were underway and BANG.

    No more e-mails from him, no response, no return phone calls. Nothing.

    7 months later I get a “happy birthday” from him because we’re on plaxo. Turns out he got a new full time job, that he posted on plaxo.

    Referrals of any kind are far too precious to waste. It is disrespectful to not honor the effort someone has extended upon your behalf to help you, not to mention unbelievably unprofessional.

    Sorry that happened to you, Wil. Your anger and frustration is fully warranted.

    I am guilty of this with friends. I get nasty wall posts from my friends on FB all the time for not calling anyone back and posting my 4SQ check-ins at the ball park, etc. BUT business is obviously a whole ‘nother ball of wax. Ouch.
