So lets say one of you guys were to call me at my business and ask "How much do you cost?"

Would you feel like I'm avoiding the question, or trying to be sincere and learn more about you (I'm really aiming at the latter of the two) if I were to say

"First can I get your name?"

(John)

"Alright John, tell me what intrests you about the martial arts?"

Yes I know I have just avoided the cost question, but I don't want to be judged on cost alone, because that would make for a really short conversation, and I might have different programs. you know?

Would you answer with what you enjoy about the martial arts, or press the cost question again? Its not like I don't want to tell you but wouldn't it be worth trying a free lesson first

what do you think
