How to Deal With Objections
By accepting the donor, you build both her trust and her sense of identity with you. You also set up an exchange dynamic where she feels a sense of obligation to repay your acceptance. But that is not the main reason you do this. You sincerely accept the donor.
Accept the objection. Accepting the objection means understanding how it is reasonable, at least from her current viewpoint, for her to object to what you may believe is an excellent offer.
