I spoke to a potential client today who contacted us through the website.
Within just a minute or so of speaking to him, my gut feeling shouted saying no, no, no! Don't take him on. At the same time logic said to me take him on, you can always get rid of him, fees are hard enough to get as it is.
As I continued my discussion with him my gut feeling was getting stronger. It is was not what he was saying but the way he was saying.
I then asked him if he was ever investigated by HMRC. His response was yes. HMRC were demanding £75k from him, he went into liquidation and opened up another company. He claimed he has not been chased for the £75k.
I ended our conversation politely and said I will get back to him. No thanks.
Here my gut feeling was right. Is it always right to go on your gut feeling?
