Q: "What's the first thing you do for a client?"
A: "Communication and clarity are so important for having a successful relationship. The first thing I do for a client is a scope of work document/project budget.

I find that initially identifying these items leads to a much happier working arrangement."
Q: "What's something you'd never tell a client?"
