Have you ever cut your hair as a way to mark a new beginning? I do that every time I need a crisp fresh start.

But it’s not just the haircut, is it?

And yes, a picture says 1000 words, but these words are open for interpretation. Do you want your readers to imagine your super clear inspiring message, or do you want to make absolutely sure they get it right?

Writing is where it all starts.
