Grammar Gram: Grammar for the Visual Learner

What’s wrong with this sentence?

It’s your opportunity to reach out to perspective clients.

In this case, “perspective” is the wrong word.

Perspective versus Prospective

“Perspective” means point of view. It is a noun, so it can’t describe the word “clients.”

“Prospective” is a form of prospect, which means potential.

Correct Sentence:

It’s your opportunity to reach out to prospective clients.
