right, not sure if anybody has this happen to them but it's seriously starting to get on my nerves!
I run my own business which i started myself, didn't get any help from anybody else & have pretty much taught myself most things with the exception of doing 1 course to make sure i had a certificate for insurance purposes.
Anyways, I get phone calls most weeks from people that have seen my adverts & want to start their own business doing the same thing. At 1st i would give a bit of advice etc to the ones that had phoned from a landline & they were quite a distance away. My phone shows their area name under the phone number so easy to figure out but now as i travel all over the country with work i've stopped doing that.
Then you get those that phone from a mobile. 1 guy said he was from a different country even though he spoke with what i'd class as normal English accent & his number was an 07 mobile so clearly in the UK!
I can't believe these idiots think you're going to happily give advice/info on what equipment to use etc when they're basically going to be a rival company. I've even had my customers asking me if i'd help them set up. 1 of which is only 20 miles away in an area i cover on a regular basis. Asked if i'd train somebody for him, for a fee of course. Said he'd pass me work on for jobs he couldn't do. Erm...... yeh i bet that would happen
Everything i've achieved i've done on my own. Paid my own way. Made my own mistakes & learned from them! How hard is it for other people to do the same instead of expecting you to make things as easy as possible for them so they can benefit from your hard work
