I believe that time is the most valuable thing we have. When we get older it seems that we have less and less. Partner, work and family are the blocks that occupy fixed spaces within our lives. In my case I have the daily post and go for a run that additionally require several hours per week. I do all this because I enjoy it, nobody forces me to do anything.

I don’t like to waste my time. I have discovered Cameroon WhatsApp Number mainly through the experience of setting up a start-up basic activities to perform the same tasks more effectively and efficiently .

What he shared with me was something that I continue to experience in the first person practically every week:
Wow, complicated. He kept asking me questions without giving me details about what he had planned. In the end he told me “prepare me a proposal” without specifying why.
How to deal with clients who don’t know what they want
I didn’t really tell him what I thought at the time because I’ve been more negative with him than usual lately. I didn’t want to make him bitter on Friday. If you hear from a client and it really doesn’t matter how important and big it is, he tells you “prepare me a proposal” without giving you more details, start running and don’t waste any more time.
