I’ve written many Posts about what makes a good client but after my interaction this morning with a current client who is the perfect example of a poor client I’ve decided to explain.

Before you meet anyone in Bon Jour you have to have a good relationship with me.  I am your agent, coach, matchmaker and advocate.  If our relationship is not good than more than likely you may not achieve the success you desire.  We have to communicate clearly and as a client you MUST keep all information and pictures updated.

This morning it was like pulling teeth….first she writes that she is now available to meet people and there are no updates.  Then she writes she moved but no address.  Then she sends the address but with no zip code or specifics after prompting and I try to call her.  Her cell is no longer a working number…REALLY?????  So I write again asking for the correct number.  She sends that and then says she got a puppy.  Those are changes… then writes that she lost 8 lbs. but does not give me her current weight.  So I ask again, she still has not given me that.  These are obvious updates and should have been shared when they happened!  Come on…

Then I say I need current pictures reflecting her weight loss and she sends me old pictures from before the weight loss.  As of 4/11/19 she still has not sent me current pictures.  THIS IS NOT AN INTERNET DATING SITE OR A DATING APP.  Everything must be current and is in your best interest to be current!

Regarding pictures…one of the biggest benefits of Bon Jour Matchmaking is that I share pictures of all of my clients.  They have to be current and preferably taken specifically for this endeavor.  I don’t think that’s too much to ask when you are making both a financial and emotional investment with me.
