We start early here at Professional Art Services. Busy, busy, busy getting it done and the requests are stacking up! Here is a tip: "MAKE A LIST". It is great to think and discuss ideas and needs but if you do not write it down and review it often things become "OUT OF SITE, OUT OF MIND". So put pen to paper and keep it in front of your eyes and on the top of your mind. This is helpful when asking for collaboration. Professional folks are very busy and time is valuable, so get the point quickly and efficiently by reviewing and editing your list often.
