SPEAKING OF EMERGENCIES, I’D LIKE TO REMIND MY CLIENTS TO HAVE MY NUMBERS AND THOSE OF MY ASSOCIATES ON YOU AT ALL TIMES YOU ARE IN RUSSIA. MAKE ARRANGEMENTS FOR ME TO BE WITHIN REACH AT ALL TIMES YOU ARE IN HIGH-RISK ZONES, AND IF NECESSARY TO BE ABLE TO RUSH TO YOUR RESCUE. THE RETAINER FEE FOR THIS SORT OF REMOTE EMERGENCY SUPPORT WITH A VERY SMALL PROBABILITY I’LL ACTUALLY HAVE TO LIFT MY BUM IS VERY INEXPENSIVE OR EVEN FREE TO EXISTING CLIETNS.
