7 things designers can learn from hookers

by Michelle Butt
  1. Keep your eye on the prize. It's a business transaction. Don't be shy about the money, unless it's just a hobby.
  2. Tell him how big and wonderful it is. Clients always go for exaggeration and praise...no matter how big or small they really are..
  3. Make yourself presentable. Cargo pants don't cut it. Try a fake leather miniskirt and fishnet stockings. All the Pentagram folks do that. Big clients are impressed.
  4. Leave 'em smiling. A happy client is a returning client.
  5. Show your best talents. You have a natural gift for not gagging in the presence of clients. Work on it if you don't.
  6. Always ask what they want first. ( this should be Number One.)
  7. Follow-up. Take his wallet while you're down there.
