Have you noticed that things happen in threes? Well, the other day I saw three articles – one in the news, one on Facebook, and another on Twitter – all talking about the same thing! Naturally, I took that as a sign….there’s a there there. What’s more, I need to write about it. Pop Quiz! What skill set…
