Would you shape your future in profit-sharing? In slices and dices?
Could you count out slowly and exhale a meaningful product? We
would not predict, and yet success is bursting from every lip. Every
line you write improves your chances of gems and shining light.
Worship your pennies and the dollars just glitter. Just farther, there,
you can see another life, that one you led in your wildest dreams, a car
in the sun, it’s fun, your car at the beach, no care in the world, that life
comes from firm outputs, healthy royalties, press releases, trust.
