What do you like most about your job?

What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
My advice to you, Before you send any of your tracks you first have to ask yourself, Do i like this song as is raw?? Your answer should be yes if your willing to send it of to a mixing engineer, Because if you don't like your song raw mixing it won't make you like it, mixing it just will make it sound properly balanced but you still won't like it, probably a little better but like a song you like from start!!, Now my second advice is never send a mix engineer a distorted track unless is the intention to, Why? Because if you do, theres nothing we can do to fix it, And you will just be wasting the engineers time and effort so that the client says no i don't like it, Never send your instruments with effects unless thats the effect you want your interments to have on the mix, is not so convenient to send them with effects because is going to be hard for the mixer to blend them and balance them properly, Third advice, Make sure none of your tracks clip. And if you have all those you'll be good to go.
