I have learned through many years of work experience, either in a day job or my own business, that the shit we have to do as makers, artists, designers, and small business owners is never ending.
It is OK to ask for help. I will always tell you if you actually need my services, and be upfront about what it will cost. I will never encourage you to spend more than necessary and if there is a free tool that will get the job done, I'm all for implementing it.
I will always show you how to use your new e-commerce store or website. I never want you to feel like you don't know how to use it, or feel like you have to have me maintain it for you. That being said you can have me stick around on retainer.
