A famous line from a movie had a grizzled old cowboy raising his finger and giving advice to a young tenderfoot. The advice was “Just one thing.” Although the grizzled cowboy never told the tenderfoot exactly what the “just one thing” was, we believe that it is doing what you enjoy doing and what you know.
