Great advice: useful for professional artists

It's been a while and I apologize - I have a large project going on and have had to shut down all other artwork, including my Etsy store, to stay focused. However, today my husband shared an excellent article with me "Client Red Flags? Ask These 4 Questions." By Steve Tovak.

Some artists seem to have as long a list of "bum" clients as "good" clients. Sometimes the bad list is longer. I know I often feel obligated to take any and all work that comes my way, sometimes despite my gutt reaction to the client, because, well, I need the work!

I'm comitting these four questions to memory for the next new client who contacts me.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Hope you're doing well...sounds like you're quite busy! I would love to see pics of the project you are working on when it's done ;)
Have a lovely weekend!

Those seem obvious, but, of course, we all kick ourselves for not thinking of them straight away. *^_^* Thanks for sharing and don't forget to be good to yourself, too!
