It’s crazy to be annoyed with a community consultant that recommends you don’t build a community.
Trust me, only the good consultants will turn down the work. They’ve just saved you a lot of time, money and pain on something that wouldn’t have worked.
You can find 1000 community builders that will say yes. It’s much, much, harder to find 1 who will say no.
These are the community consultants you should recommend to others.
