What to say instead of “I’m busy”

 What’s most people’s response to “How’s business?”

“I’m so busy!”

That’s a great response – if you want to end the conversation!

If you’re busy, they won’t want to bother you with referrals.

If you’re busy, they won’t trust you to be responsive to their best clients.

If you’re busy, you give off the vibe that you don’t have time for networking.

So what’s a better response?

Mention a recent win.

  • “Great! I hired a new content writer”
  • “Fantastic! I signed a contract with a new private school”
  • “Wonderful! I got a new lead off LinkedIn”
  • “Awesome! My daughter put together an amazing art project”

“I’m busy” isn’t the only off-putting response.

What’s a cringeworthy response you’ve heard to “how’s business?”
