Many years ago I had a close friend who started his own business. Over the years I maintained a personal and business relationship with him. Before I started my own business I called him and asked him what was the most difficult decision he had faced. He thought a moment and told me that learning when to say "no" was the toughest thing he had to learn. This same advice holds true for clients and candidates when working with a professional executive recruiter. It is okay to say "no" and tell the recruiter what is right for you or your company. The worst thing you can do is fail to make a decision on your own behalf.
