Well, do you?

Has it ever worked in your favour/backfired?

Do you swear when talking to prospects/clients?

Read the room. For me swearing naturally brings in a more human side to the conversation and builds trust at a level if done well.Β

No f bombs, but I've dropped the odd blue word in there when my prospect started using them. Never be the first to swear.

You just have to feel it out. I won't go out of my way to swear, but if I think they are comfortable with me and drop an F bomb I'm more likely to do it.

Unless you already have that rapport with the person you're talking to or they are using it, I wouldn't risk it.Β

I've never been comfortable swearing at work even though everyone else does, including prospects. It doesn't bother me when someone swears (well, it depends on the words they use)

Do you ever curse when talking to prospects?

When a lead answers the phone for the first time in history only to scream at me to stop calling my first reaction is to laugh really loud. I don't even think about it.
