Do not shut down when there are too many people after your services. Closing your ears is the same as trying to put your head in the sand. No matter what you do they will still know you are there. Shutting down only makes people think you do not want to be involved in the solution. It will serve you better to address each person and let them know how and when you will be able to assist them. This places YOU in charge and then turns everyone else into your team!

They will have much more respect for you and the assistance you can provide!

Give more service than is required and you will receive tenfold!
