It's a good idea to have a safety plan in place when meeting new clients. Listed below are a few ideas of how to do that.
If you are contacted by a potential client that you have never met, make sure that a colleage, friend, or family member knows where you will be.
Think about asking a colleage to call a few minutes after the start of a meeting with a new client for an all-is-okay response.
Meet new clients at a public place such as a coffee shop or make use of your membership at GAAR. The GAAR Facilty has several conference rooms for members use, free of charge, call ahead to schedule a time.
Trust your insticts! Listen to you gut! Be Cautious!
