Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Know, at least in broad terms, what you are trying to accomplish and do a little bit of brainstorming before taking the step to hire someone like me. First, think of what the overall goal is for your project- what message are you looking to get out and who are you trying to reach? Secondly, determine what your budget is. Having those vital pieces of information will help guide the process and all of the other pieces will then fall into place.
