The Unintentional Absentee

The Unintentional Absentee

You run into obstacles more frequently than most. Somehow circumstances always tend to get in the way of your good intentions and you easily surrender to them. While your excuses may seem valid to you, those on the receiving end are left scrambling to readjust their plans. While things can occasionally arise preventing people from carrying out their responsibilities, this tends to be the norm for you.

Evaluate what’s happening. Is there a reason why everything else takes precedence over the task at hand? Bad timing, fear, anxiety...is your heart really in it? Reflect on it and be upfront about it when you are discussing collaborations.

The Self Admirer

The Self Admirer

You know for a fact you've got talent and you are primarily focused on achieving your personal goals. People are always seeking to collaborate with you, so you hold all the cards and call all the shots including when you show up, if you'll be prepared when you arrive and how long you'll stick around when you get there.

While it's cool to know your worth and remain focused, remember your humble beginnings. Be sure to remain professional so that you don't alienate the people who can help you maintain the level of success that you presently have or desire to achieve.

The Perpetual Procrastinator

The Perpetual Procrastinator

You tend to let time get away from you, believing things will fall into place. While this may be a great mantra when you're seeking peace, it is important to recognize that you have to work to make things happen. People are counting on you and if you wish to continue to be contacted for opportunities, you must put forth your best effort.

The Project Snatcher

The Project Snatcher

You like things a certain way. Your take charge mentality can be helpful, but when unrequested can be off-putting to collaborating artists at times. When making suggestions, be mindful of the fact that the collaborator has artistic vision too and may want to carry it out the way that they envision it.

The Dream Dealer

The Dream Dealer

You have tons of brilliant ideas, but they rarely seem to make their way into fruition. You love the excited reactions you get when you share them, but your drive tends to fall by the wayside when it's time to plan and execute.
When you are sharing these ideas, if you become overwhelmed or have a lot going on that would inhibit execution, be upfront and work out something that would allow the process to move forward.

The Ideal Collaborator

The Ideal Collaborator

You are the collaborator's dream. You understand the drive, dedication, and strong work ethic that it takes to make magic and you put in continuous effort to make things happen. Keep up the good work and continue to lead by example.
