No Value

No Value

1 Corinthians 1:27-29

But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God.

Don’t Sell Yourself Short

This is just a quick thought I had today.  It’s not directly about music or drums but it is about business and perhaps about you personally.

I am a firm believer in the customers sets the value of your product but I’ve come to learn that you don’t let the customer dictate how you run your business.
