Good Enough Doesn't Live Here

If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over? - John Wooden
When things get hectic we all have a tendency to comply with "good enough". Resist that urge and take the few extra minutes to make the adjustments needed to move from good to great. That is where the magic happens. Doing it well once really does take less time (in the long run). 
- Amy    

Thank you to those that have already shown your support and reserve your ad space, we are truly grateful. You are the reason we continue to grow with each edition.

I look forward to becoming more involved in this community.
