I don’t want to look at the notifications.
My brain seems to thrive on analog.

My Honda CRV is ready to go.
A fresh, cold water bottle is my companion.

There are no updates, tweets, posts.

At the crossroads…

I’ll be coming back.

I bet you can image this conversation happening in your office or at a coffee house?

 

I can confirm that as much as someone might call you a guru or expert, the process of getting called those terms and actually getting paid to do it because they believe in you are two different things. I suggest having stories, numbers, and case-studies to back-up your work.
