Oh no, I was already sending him files. He asked me to send plans so he can see what can be done. I don't know if I didn't make it clear, but I WAS willing to pay. I wasn't freeloading, at least from my point of view, off of Mr. Brandt. It hadn't been even that long a conversation when he stopped. I know you can get carried away with time, but that's part of the business and you can't use that as an excuse. Business is business, and since I was going to pay, every customer is worth the attention.

I agree about the truth behind this allegation. I did find someone who said Stuart did outright ghost him, but that was it. That was the only bad reference I got out of the lot of good comments and results on his work. As I said earlier, I actually contacted past clients, one-on-one, to see what they thought about their involvement with Stuart, and all of them were pleased.

IMO this conversation won't take us anywhere, because both of us are a bit biased. And to this day, Stuart hasn't gone AWOL on me. I'm not saying he won't but he hasn't still, unlike others.
