“Start here” Quick Guide


Are you tired of picking up a digital project and not knowing EXACTLY where you need to start, at a glance?  Or non-digital project too.

With this simple tool, there will be no more guessing or wasted time having to dig deep into the files, or your brain, or worse yet, having to ask the client where you left off.  This simple system will keep you on track in an instant.

Note:  If you tend to have only 1 or 2 clients at a time, or if you already have a system that is working, you probably don’t need this tool.  But if you juggle with 3 or more clients at any given time and/or are frustrated every time you pick up a project, then this was made for you and me!
