This is the second more common question I get asked by prospective clients. How long is it going to take? Each project is different and may require different steps in the process. Projects vary in size and complexity and this all influences the time we need to allow for things to happen. Current workloads with all of those required in the process needs to happen to allow us to work together cohesively.

So, having a good chat about what it is you want to do, how much you have to spend, what steps are in the process, and who else needs to be involved in your project all form an idea of the timeframes.


When a client understands what needs to happen and why they understand the timeframes.

One thing that I also mention to my clients is that in this timeframe, we need to allow time for them. Do not forget that you will be making decisions and that takes time too.

There are many decisions to be made along the way. And life happens while your projects is happening. Time is needed for decisions to be made and accommodating those things that crop up unexpectedly. This process is not a race, it’s a step-by-step journey for you to get the best result.  No one wants to regret the decisions they make, so let’s take the time to get it right.

If you want to get a clearer idea of what your project's process, budget, and timeframes look like, have a chat with me, Sharon. Book a complimentary chat on I look forward to hearing from you.
