    Screening clients for appointments can be tricky. It can be easy to scare away a lot of first timers or beginners with asking for too much personal information, i.e. full names, employment verifications, even requesting an unblocked number can trigger fear of “getting caught” to a nervous first timer. However, you absolutely cannot compromise your safety in these situations. Even if you’re desperate and rent is due tomorrow and you’ve had three clients flake on you in 36 hrs and you just wanna seal the fuckin deal finally. These moments are when you have to especially hold strong. So i suggest, for clients that really need the anonymity to feel safe, requesting two provider references is a reasonable substitute. Explain to your client that you totally understand their need for privacy but you need to verify each client as a rule of thumb. Ask them if they have references from two providers who have ads online. Getting all the info and actually reaching the providers can be a hassle, but the process does provide the added bonus of talking with another human in the biz who can give you good info on your client. Not to mention the generally feeling of solidarity and goodwill between you and a colleague is a really good feeling.

    I think the important thing to remember when screening is how easy it is to let details slip through the cracks, get lazy and compromise your safety. Especially when you know there are clients getting lost here and there when they don’t want to comply to your standards. Lowering your standards not only puts you at a risk that is really, really not worth taking, but you are closing the door to awesome, respectful, legit customers every time you let a pushy asshole through the door. In my experience, there is no one tactic that elevated the quality of my work environment more than LEARNING TO SAY NO! Its not always easy to put yourself in a position that demands respect in this industry, but at the end of the day, it’s all worth it.
