feedback: to give or not to give

I've been working on some freelance projects here in Portland > great to get my hands on some "problems" and put to use some of the tools in my planning bag. It's appealing because it puts more experience on my resume; and mind you, when I was in New York spreading my brand, it was nice to say I was doing freelance work in Portland on the side.

After four completed projects, I would like some constructive criticism moving forward. I admire the nature of feedback > to make your work stronger. Feedback is to provide useful information for future decisions/development. Maybe it's just me, but it feels like a necessary part of the process that has been deemed "not a priority."

My roommate Alana says I should feel confident enough in my work and not to worry. She says most people will only give you feedback if it sucked. (Really?) I think that if it was good work, a short email saying "good work" is an easy thing to do. Hmmm....I'm left wondering...
i need a consultant.

I think feedback is 100% necessary in any situation like this. It is impossible for one mind to think of all the possible ways of attacking a problem. Talking to other people about something will eventually add richness and more angles to something.

Of course you need feedback. My feedback especially because you know no one can ever think exactly like me!!! We are all snowflakes.......On a serious note, everyone needs improvement as there is no perfect person. So welcome feedback with open arms and let it start a flowing.....
