The Most Important Word In The World

Shaking Hands

If you’re like me, when you see something that claims to be the “most important” or “the best” or “#1″, you take a deep breath and say, “ok, here we go!” I’m getting all hyperbolic on you with my title but when you finish, I think you’re going to agree with me. ¬†Is that presumptuous? […]
