Today I was hearing this guy trying to pitch his design services to all these people in a casual way such as doing some small talk and then showing his portfolio. His work did seem impressive which got some people interested. Now for whatever reason he then started to talk about his philosophical beliefs in lie and some of them were pretty extreme. Because of that, everyone started to seem less interested in ever working with him professionally.
Is it a better idea in cases like these to simply keep any personal life details or beliefs away so people can just focus on what skill or service you are offering? I guess one could argue that sharing their beliefs has attracted them business as well as it can be something that a person relates with and therefore will be more comfortable in doing business with you. Overall, it’s more neutral just to focus on what you offering and how it helps them.
