Why don't your carry your iPhone on you at all times?

Because I constantly work with technology, I am purposely not chained to it. I don't carry my phone on me at all times. I'm either in a meeting, doing work, or spending time with my family. I will return your phone call or email you with an answer if you provide enough detailed information. Otherwise, you can schedule a meeting at https://stuartnoggle.com/scheduleme/

What's up with your texts?

I only use text messaging for yes/no answers. I don't have extended conversations over texting—shoot me an email or pick up the phone and call.

Group messages are blocked—shoot me an email, pick up the phone and call, or schedule a meeting at https://stuartnoggle.com/scheduleme/.

I want to give you my full attention and the best I have to give. I don't do last-minute meetings or emergencies. If there is an emergency, call 9-1-1. If you'd like to meet with me you need to:

Can you ______________________?

I'm happy to do what I can to help you, but I don't make any commitments unless they are in writing. Email me your request and I'll shoot back an answer.

Why don't you use Facebook Messenger, LinkedIn Messages, Snapchat, etc.?

My question for you is, "How do you keep track of all that stuff?" I can't keep track of it all and still be effective. I care more about doing a great job for you than managing the latest social networking app. Please email, call, or schedule a meeting at https://stuartnoggle.com/scheduleme/

Can I use you as a recommendation and reference?

I am frequently swamped with recommendations. If I agree to a recommendation, then you will need to follow the steps below:

(1) Answer questions on this form in the third person - https://goo.gl/forms/vWGmKlCOjit1hBOi1
(2) Send me an email with items you want emphasized in your recommendation letter. Some background info on your new job interest helps.
(3) As a reference, only use the contact information on the recommendation letter I send you.

I process recommendation requests as I have time. I receive 30+ requests per year. Paying clients are always prioritized so a last-minute recommendation request is probably not going to happen.
