I wanted to include a list of things I think people should try to cover in their portfolios to attract the most clients. I went into depth on this subject in our Children's book class here at svslearn.com but I'm posting it here in conjunction with a youtube video explaining it below. If you have any questions about the content I would ask that you watch my video first
