Telephone use...and patience?

Each independent business person, must choose their own method of operations with regard to telephone etiquette.  I dislike (and find it quite rude) interrupting a borrower, who may be signing a multi-million dollar transaction before me, to pause and answer a call from an unknown entity.  While they may be calling to inquire about appointment-setting or pricing and I certainly hope to gain their business, I wish to offer my client my full and undivided attention.  I monitor my phone by glancing at the phone when it rings but unless it is someone involved in the package I'm signing, they will need to wait for my call-back within the hour or follow the directions in my out-going message regarding texting if a matter is urgent.  I recognize that in today's world, impatience is a reality and everyone expects immediate and complete attention.  Most times in the real world, you must take a number, stand in line or wait until the person you are visiting hangs up their current call.  For those without that level of patience, while I do indeed want your business, I won't compromise my professionalism to attain it.  By that same set of rules, when you or your client is before me, I will extend to you the same courtesy.I am a huge believer in technology and the efficiency it affords businesses like mine.  I am GPS guided (with GPS back-up) with my blue-tooth, voice-activated e-mail, text-messaging, facebook, twitter and other similar applications and devices on-board.  But, if you don't have the patience required of a real-world human being, then I'm afraid there is a possibility you may be disappointed.Based in Orange County, California and serving Six Southern California Counties personally, I hope you will choose "A Quick Note". Https://aquicknote.net On Twitter: www.twitter.com/aquicknote On Facebook:http://on.fb.me/9Xp0Y0

I also believe that when you are with a client they should get all your attention! That is what voicemail is for!
