Although each consulting project requires a different level of commitment from both parties, I cannot stress enough that I only engage with clients who have an interest in developing their knowledge and skills by doing the work. I will not make key decisions for you nor will I bear the brunt of the groundwork to produce designs for people who do not want to understand them.
If you are interested in discussing a potential consulting project with me I need a certain amount of information upfront to consider whether I can be of service or not.
I will review your inquiry and respond as soon as I reasonably can. If I believe your project is something I am capable of providing a worthwhile service for, we can arrange up to an hour (depending on the scope of the project) to discuss things in more detail through a virtual meeting. I will use the information you have provided me to investigate your situation as well as I can to prepare for this meeting.
At the end of the meeting I will either make you an offer or request more time to consider upon receiving new information before sending an offer to you at a later date.
