Grant Blakeman – TRANSCRIPT

And now I am plugged in and ready to keep going on my day. So, let’s get to work.

And then another client calls and, you know, his request is really reasonable, but it’s really urgent and I’ve got to drop everything that I am doing and — What was I doing? It doesn’t matter. It’s lunch time.
