When it comes to people, we are equal. When it comes to business, we are not.
Is a phrase I often use when shopping. I’m a man who likes good value. Truth be told, I don’t like parting with money on goods but for experiences, I have no such issues. This is because I value experiences over materialist things.
When I can buy an item for £4.99 in one shop, I will usually make some sort of retort if I am being expected to purchase the same item for £35 in another.
“HOW MUCH? It’s a pen. What is it made from, solid gold? You must be joking!”
But after years of backpacking and staying in dorms with 85 other people all sharing a bucket for a bathroom, I feel like I’ve served my time.
I ask no such question when it comes to hotels. Quite the opposite in fact.
A hotel room being advertised for £24 a night would have me doing an inward shudder.
A hotel room being advertised for £250 a night would make me believe that I would be getting a rather nice space to sleep and stay.
A hotel room being advertised for £600 a night would make me believe that I am going to be experiencing a lot of luxury.
All hotel businesses are selling a place to sleep – but the quality in what is on offer will vary dramatically depending on price.
The same is true of career coaching and CV writing services.
You could pay £40 an hour, and someone will listen to you nodding sagely. Depending on the quality, you may or may not be better off. This is the gamble you take when you are looking for budget services.
Potentially you might get a sleepless night for your money and a less than desirable room.
With a 100% success rate, Mapleleaf Vision clients can be sure of a quality service and be able to sleep soundly knowing they can make the right choices to reach their goals.
I am not the Ritz. I am definitely not a hostel or budget city break either. Like a boutique one-of-a-like hotel, I offer bespoke coaching and CV services with lots of personal attention to provide a high quality, touch of luxury.
