Hunter Walk insists on saying "no" so that he can reserve more time and space for himself, and he gives a number of polite and effective ways to say "no".

“I’m sorry I just can’t prioritize that right now but best of luck.”
“I know you’re not asking for a lot of my time, but I need to concentrate on getting some projects done and can’t let myself be distracted right now. Best of luck.”
“If you can provide some specific examples or questions you think I can be helpful on, perhaps I’ll be able to answer them here and we don’t need to worry about chatting live.”
“Can you provide a little more detail over email so I can make sure I’m a good use of your time.”
“I’m holding all my scheduled time back right now for our portfolio founders (and my family) but if you reply with some specific questions, I’ll do my best to answer via email or a Loom video if I think I can be helpful.”
“Thanks and appreciated meeting you as well. Don’t feel like we need to chat live right now but feel free to stay in touch.”
“I know this sounds weird but I’m only doing these sorts of conversations in 15 minute phone calls between X-Ypm on days of the week. I’d be happy to chat then if you still think it’s worth your time. Here’s my next availability…”
