I'll need access to your accounting ledgers.
Done. Read only, of course. Anything else?
Not at the moment. I want to look around and talk to more people.

To ensure prompt payment, I want a plan B. As we look around and talk to people, keep an eye open for anything portable and valuable in case we need to make a quick exit.
