“Saw a quote the other day that really sums up why we love working with you and who others get us to do what we do. “If you’re not an expert at doing something, then engaging others to do this for you provides you with the opportunity to get on with the things are good at.” Your help is invaluable and makes a huge difference. Wow, you amaze Brett and I every time you work your magic. You make what I wanted to say sound so much better.”
