"Hey, Nick . . . How about another baseball analogy??? If I am a good fastball hitter, and the only pitches I ever get from the pitcher are fastballs, I could probably hit for a much higher (successful)…"
"Mitch, I ask the same question of you . . . WHY!!!!
Can't you see that when you write "If you're happy working with a method that produces more failure than success,
good luck with that." . . . . "The way I work…"
"Nick, You took the time to write a thoughtful and comprehensive page on the subject which was filled with truth and substance. It is unfortuntate that Mitch could only respond like a politician who knows his position is…"
"Well, Mitch YOU JUST SAID IT AGAIN . . . .

"Thank you, Mitch. I know you understand . . . my initial note was only to respectfully challenge your statement that if one was not getting some of the fee up front, he/she is not a headhunter. There are several legitimate ways to…"
"Thanks for your reply, Mitch.
All your points are well taken and appropriate with me. But, the kind of guarantee I value most is the trusting relationship I work very hard to build with my clients. They know when they give me an…"
"Well, Mitch, I think your definition of a headhunter is quite narrow. My 20+ years of experience has all been on contingency fees and it is always very gratifying when a satisfied client calls you asking for your help with a…"
"I will join Terence in that Amen! corner.
This kind of feedback will certainly keep this search in the "A" bucket.
A new client once came to the phone, told me that I would be his new hero if I found for him . . . . .
and he gave me a very…"
