Being a Buddy is REALLY EASY. I just meet my clients at the door on their
first visit (after contacting them by e-mail or phone as to the date, time
and place, subject of meeting, etc.), show them into the Basics, and sit
with them during the main program. I introduce them to a few people, answer
any questions they may have, etc. - just like a friend would.
They get on well after that without too much from me. So don't be afraid
to be a Buddy.
