"CRAFTSMANSHIP is a relationship between the maker and the process of creation. It is not simply a set of skills one acquires, like the ability to read or drive a car. More than anything, craftsmanship is a matter of attitude...
"In this context, craftsmanship is first and foremost an expression of the human spirit.
"The artist is not concerned with the utility of the created object; the craftsman is. ...This care is implicit in every step... Craftsmanship is both attitude and skills."
- from Woodworking Basics by Peter Korn
"For me successful business relationships are all about finding the right match. The customer and I have to be a good match, or there is going to be too much conflict for me to enjoy working with them. If I don't enjoy working with them there's really no point in entering the relationship - the money earned will be long gone before the negative energy generated by the relationship is.
"Life's too short. Let your website represent the real you, whoever that is. Do that and the customers you attract will share enough personal values with you to have a decent shot at creating a good working relationship at least - maybe even develop into a friendship - and we all know how rare those are."
