Business should be between people, rather than companies, because it’s damned hard to make friends with a logo
Since I started Green Man, I’ve worked with clients all around the world … no small feat considering I live in the middle of nowhere. I work primarily through email, but am available via text messaging, video conferencing and of course, the telephone.
Email works fine, as you have everything we say in writing, so if you need to refer back to it to remember how something is done, or why we did it in the first place, you can. There’s a lot to learn and it’s hard to digest things all at once.
But I can clean up and meet in person if the situation calls for it. As noted, I’m not exactly centrally located. But feel free to contact me about setting up a meeting. I like to travel.
The more I know about your business and what you want to do, the better work I do. I have a genuine interest in people’s ideas and dreams, and love learning about them.
So fill my head with detail if you want. You’ll get better results.
I’ll do my best, and I’ll do what I say I’ll do. I’ll tell you before I do anything what I’m going to do, and if at the end of the project you don’t think I’ve done it, I keep working till you do.
Typically, I don’t use them. I believe in trust. You have my guarantee above. For bigger jobs I might need to, and if you insist, I’ll sign one. But for now, I still have faith in humanity. In the almost ten years of Green Man’s existence, it’s not let me down yet.
I ask for 50% up front, which is refundable if we just don’t get on together.
Payments can be made by check or PayPal, Dwolla or about anything else you want me to signup for. Cash works too. Occasionally trade. It never hurts to ask.
