I love Silence of the Lambs. I think it was the greatest feminist film of its time. A woman fixes all the problems brought on by numerous men around her in a back-handed, quiet but forceful, way. Clarice is my hero. But I digress. There are so many scenes...
When someone reaches out to connect with me on LinkedIN, and then WHAM!!!! I get a message from them asking for my business right away. Here is one that came in today.
"Hi Christine. It's great connecting with you! Nice track record by the way!
I’m curious if you’ve considered looking at the valuation or a sale of your company?
The reason I ask is that we help business owners and companies similar to yours prepare for their liquidity event and achieve the highest valuation possible.
Would you be open to a brief chat?
PS - here is my calendar to book a call:"
I go to Silence of the Lambs when Hannibal Lector explains to her how to do the dance of establishing trust before you ask for what you want. Good lesson for everyone here.
