Follow-up is a noun. It’s a thing. It describes an action. It’s also a verb that loses the hyphen. We should all follow up on our prospects. We should follow up on our opportunities.

Let’s examine that list of things to do in detail at this critical junction.
There is nothing more important than being agreeable. When they say they need to think about it (The Dreaded Six Words) you must not become panicky, show disappointment, lose faith, or drop your card in their hand and scoot them off. Just be agreeable.

Sometimes we lose track of the obvious. We get all up into the big stuff and forget the small stuff – like why someone would WANT to buy our art. If you can give yourself a nice list of why owning your art is important, you are more likely to pursue finding homes for your art. I have a list!
