So if you have any Feng Shui or BaZi questions email them to us at [email protected] and we’ll publish her response in our next edition.
Dear Madam Lee, I am wondering if you can advise me on a problem that I have experienced from time to time in dealing with clients who have an unreasonable or unrealistic understanding of Feng Shui. Most recently I was harassed on the phone by a perspective client who bombarded me with a series of unrelenting (and often skeptical) Feng Shui related questions. This made me very uncomfortable and unsure as to whether I should accept the consultation.
When a client calls to enquire about a consultation and asks almost too many questions, it’s best to offset and respond to this by asking them what do they understand ie. What is their understanding or expectation of Feng Shui? From their answers you then have a foundation from which to respond and also a better idea of whether or not their intention and purpose is genuine. Unless you are comfortable and feel that you can competently fulfill their requirements, you are under no obligation to proceed with the consultation as their needs may well be better met by another practitioner. In other words pay attention to your intuition and be honest, firm and polite if you feel that you are not the right person for the job.
