It's often a challenge to picture what you're getting with a product, job or service from the initial description. My friend Wendy mentioned that in one of her interviews, she asked,
- Picture six months from now. I'm sitting in your office saying 'why didn't you tell me..." How might I complete the sentence?
I was talking about how difficult it was for me to picture what my website redesign would include. There are so many elements, and I take some for a given that others might not. In retrospect, here's a question I could have asked.
- When you turn the site over to me, what will it still need.
That would be a great question for a builder, too!
