Listening and being empathetic go a long way, and I work hard to make sure that all of my clients always feel heard and understood.

My wife’s world-famous spaghetti supremo (really just bolognese, but my son called it supremo and it stuck).

Describe your perfect client.
One of my clients once described me as her “partner-in-crime,” and I think this is a good analogy for an ideal client relationship — willing to put our heads together, open to advice, direct with feedback.
