You wouldn’t expect to see Gordon Ramsay cutting into a perfectly cooked beef wellington with a cheap knife he picked up at the grocery store. Danica Patrick wasn’t winning NASCAR races in a street-legal daily commuter car. Artists, skilled craftspeople, artisans, and athletes all bring phenomenal talent and years of dedicated effort to their work. But they don’t stop there: they also invest in the right tools to support their unique needs. What’s perfectly adequate for an average person’s everyday use isn’t up to the needs of a professional at the top of their game.…

Oh! And don’t forget the constant calls and emails from clients asking about deal status.…
