Cars are made on production lines. So is chocolate. Steel products, electronics and pharmaceuticals are all produced to exact quality standards and precise specifications. And then there’s you. There’s only one you. You weren’t manufactured on a production line, you’re a masterpiece. You may not meet strict specifications, but that’s what makes you interesting. You’re […]
