What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
It depends on how much of the materials can be provided by the client from their life and how much would have to be purchased.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Being a bit of a hoarder - I wanted to be able to find a home for the things that were hidden away in junk drawers rather than just move them from house to house.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Don't imagine everything has to look like everything else - sometimes it is good to have something that is just for you.
