The idea is not bad, but personally I don’t think this would be something I would want for myself. Giving your clients a peek in your schedule has several downsides imho.
The biggest one is that there will be a lot of potential inquirys that I will never know of, because I won’t get that call or mail in the first place. Even if you got something else coming up there might be that once in a lifetime offer, that you just have to take.
The other biggie is that you lose your edge negotiationg prices if things are slow at times and the client knows you’re in need.
So even though the widget looks great, there are some things to be considered before having yourself out there like that.

no way,
First of all there is nothing better than talk with a client and figure out how to work around a schedule if there is a conflict.
Such a tool would put away clients and if you are not busy it would not be a good sign to have out there.
While I do understand the practicality of such a tool, I think is detrimental for your business.

It looked cool at first, and it is a great idea, but i have to agree with everyone it really kills a chance of a first contact. But congrats for the idea and initiative.
