    April 4, 2011|By David Lester

    Do you notice that credit card companies keep blingin’ up their cards. They all seem to be gold, or platinum or shiny black metallic now.

    March 3, 2011|By David Lester

    When we buy it’s not really because of the “thing” we’re buying.  A shoe is a really an expression of desired leadership in style and a car is an expression of achievement of freedom.  Next time you’re buying something that you don’t think you need, ask yourself “when I wear or have this item, what […]
