Analog or digital and why?
Digital, great quality analog emulation plugins can be hard to tell from the actual gear. So you actually have the choice to make things sound analog or digital.

What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
I've read things on youtube comments like: mix engineers just make things louder, a good test: put a limiter (maximizer) on your unmixed track, bring the level up or down to mirror the mixed version. Be the judge.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
what message do they want to send with their music, how they want it to "feel"
