Never let others say you’re only dreaming, that you’re just a dreamer.  Just a dreamer?  That’s about as naïve as saying, “Well, I’m only human.” If you truly think about both of those sentences, they are in actuality incredible statements and concepts.  Every journey that has produced solid results started with dreaming then a thought, a hope or an idea … Read more
