The Budget to Do Your Best Work

The budget to do your best work. I was explaining this concept to a client last week and it reminded me it would be something useful to blog about. It’s not just about budget, it’s about entirely optimum conditions to do your best work at all times for your clients. Anything less and neither party is happy with it.
