Most executives are pretty clear on their goals and they are used to a “bottom-line-it-for-me” environment. They are also usually comfortable taking risks – calculated risks based on their knowledge and experience. They will invest at a higher level than many other professions or personality types if they see advantage.

Also, they tend to make sales decisions quickly and they can give you information pretty quickly too – you can usually close them with a single conversation. They know what they are good at and that makes your work easier. You may find you have to pull some accomplishments out of them, or ironically, prevent them from being too verbose, but for the most part, they are ideal clients, if you’ve focused on fit when you sell.
