While at other times you may have felt unsure about your chances with a potential female client and were pleasantly surprised that she chose to work with you.

Generally, women want to be treated as a partner so anything that sounds like you are talking down or preaching to them is likely to turn them off. On the other hand, they like to be informed so when they ask questions they are not doubting you necessarily – asking questions is they way they learn and understand what’s going on.
