How many times have you gotten an inquiry from an ideal client with a huge budget, but the date they want is already booked?

So frustrating.

Yesterday, I was talking with a client who hired me to help book more clients at higher rates.

This is the number one reason people reach out to me for coaching, so I thought I’d share a bit of the story with you this week.

I already knew quite a bit about the topic at the time.
