Listening to the experts at Buff Box: Part I

April 11, 2016

It’s common knowledge. We tend to like when things are straightforward and simple. And while I like a challenge as much as the next person, there are times when being told what to do is the better option, especially when the person telling us what to do is an expert in their field.
