here's a lesson for a potential wedding DJ...

if you want to sign up a new client, it's a good idea to meet where it's convenient for the CLIENT, and not trying to get them to drive to you, especially when they tell you that they are only in the area for 2 days and have flown from the other coast just to meet wedding vendors.

and after agreeing on a time and place to meet (let's say, at the airport, which is 20 minutes away from where you live), it's not a good idea to complain about how inconvenient it is for you and try to change the meeting place. and then finally agreeing back to the original time and place after voicing concerns on how "worth it" it is for you to meet said potential client.

the probable result of your actions: potential client will call you 5 minutes later to say "you know what? we decided on another dj for our wedding, so why don't you save yourself a trip and not come meet us", despite your sudden enthusiasm to save the meeting.

oh, well, you sounded young. hopefully you learned something from this.
