Re: new client
First, I want to say that if you are thinking you did something wrong...you did not! So please don't blame yourself for this PC's lack of communication.
Second, I feel that this PC is definitely avoiding communicating with you for a few reasons, which are not related to anything you may have said. He may not be able to afford a VA (or at least thinks that he cannot) or he may be afraid of losing control of his business (or at least he feels that will be the case). Or he may think he won't have enough work for you. Or he may feel overwhelmed that his business could take off and he will lose control. It could be any number of things.
I would suggest that you try to resolve this in one of two ways:
1) Understand that he is not an ideal client for you (or any other VA for that matter). Anyone who ignores another individual after a meeting is unprofessional and is one of those red flags I am always mentioning here on VAF with the outcome being more of a headache than it is worth.
2) You didn't provide any information about the actual meeting in your post but if you felt he was worth salvaging, you may just want to call him directly. At some point if the emails don't work, pick up the phone.
If you do call him, I would explain that you are following up with the meeting and wanted to know if he had any questions. Ask him if he has any reservations about working with a virtual assistant and then answer those questions as solutions to the problem.
If he doesn't return your call, then move on. It is not worth the trouble. Some PCs are like that. But the good thing is that you can find out now, before he signs the contract that he may be a deadbeat.
