CBRbiz.com: What was the tipping point for your business?
Bobby Robinson: A tipping point in my business arose during my first few months in business, when I was determining whether to charge for consultations. I opted to not charge for consultations, primarily because I did not want to turn away clients due to the fact that I was just entering the legal market. However, after having several clients either cancel a consultation at the last minute or failing to show up for the meeting, it became more evident to me that I had to value my time, skill, and experience – if no one else does. And so I began to charge for consultation fees, and my cancellations dramatically decreased – now those clients had some skin in the game, and I also learned that most clients expect to pay for such consultations.
