Communicate – The more contact you make, the more comfortable the model/fellow creator gets with you. I try and stay in communication regularly. You get a sense of the model’s personality and you get to show yours too. In case I need to say it, BE YOURSELF. It’s the only way this can work. If you put up a front, you’ll have to maintain it. Don’t you get tired just thinking about how much work that is? If you’re an introvert, be an introvert. Don’t hush. If you’re still learning something, be transparent about that in your communication. You get the idea.
“To work well with other people, you need to understand their personalities and they need to understand yours.” – Adam Grant
