What is your secret source, your secret recipe?
What is your secret weapon?

Are you someone who when everyone is busy watching TV, you are focused on your refining your craft?

As a consultant, in order to keep updated with the industry, you need to read, if you want to have an edge, read books that not everyone is reading.

Don’t read what everyone else is reading. Check them out later, cautiously.
