Ask the right questions upfront to gain a better understanding of the goal for a project. This can also alleviate harboring additional stress.
Some questions need a definitive yes or no; while, others can give you all the information you need about a person or opportunity.
Seek out what motivates and drives people.
Ask what they expect from you.
Evaluate your options and the information you have learned, then make your decision.
Remember, everything isn’t for everybody. Make sure the opportunity is for you.
Don't work from a place of unknowns and assumptions. Just ask.
