Yes! I work with someone who gets asked this A LOT. I’d love to respond to these people with, “Who gave you the idea that this was an appropriate question to ask someone WHO DOESN’T KNOW YOU?”
I’ve also had a few people ask me this — but in an email. I answer their question and…crickets. I don’t receive a response, not even a thank-you.
From now on, my standard answer is going to be, “Sure, let’s book an appointment. I charge $xxxx an hour.”
THINK before you do this, people.
