When hiring an attorney, accountant, or using a doctor for the first time, you are met with a list of questions to answer before having a meeting. Have you ever considered stopping and asking these or any professional service provider this critical question first? You might want to after what we’ve uncovered.
It has always been assumed when you hire any professional service that you must answer all questions presented to you.
