In My Experience

Go through old notes and notebooks. I'll bet you have what you already need.
It's never easy to end a business relationship, but it's a must if it's costing you money or time
Please don't email me to tell me you have a new blog post. Instead, tell me why I should click there. What's in it for me?
Think twice before you send an email telling someone what they did wrong
Email has a shorter shelf life, which means it’s easy to delete and forget about. Yay for snail mail!
One of my biggest regrets is when I waste someone else's time-esp because I didn't read instructions
Save yourself from future headaches and date everything: your notes, your art (in the records), your communication, etc.
Artist presentation last night is cautionary tale: Leave 'em wanting more! Don't go WAY over time allotted no matter how good you are

Consistent Effort + Measured Results + Tweaking What Isn’t Working = Success!
