For us who are in the service field, it’s easy to work with clients when they come to you already with problems.
It’s because they have now identified their needs, and are coming to you maybe just to validate their own answers. Regardless, they are likely be receptive to your advice.
It’s difficult, however, if your job is to convince people that they will have a problem, say 20 years from now, and that only you can help them. In this case, people do not think of their needs as immediate and thus, will procrastinate in asking for services.
