I try to make it a priority to always close the loop on a potential project or collaboration. If we’ve spent time working out some initial details together, it seems obvious that if we decide to not move forward for whatever reason, we should at least conclude officially. No just letting it hang out there in the abyss. If we exchange emails, talk on the phone, or meet in person, that definitely means I should let you know, the potential client or team member, that things are a no-go. Call it good business practice or common courtesy, let’s all try to make this a priority in our busy lives.
