Your Opinion Doesn’t Always Matter

There’s an idea today that your opinion is always right. That everybody is entitled to their opinion and whether it’s made from thin air, or actually has merit, it is equally as important.

Being Yourself No Matter What

Have you ever heard the term, “think outside the box?” The idea behind this is that to stand out, you need to get out of the current environment you are in. Many industries have a certain stereotype that people fall into. The way they dress, talk, act, everything. I see it all the time, in […]
