  • From my Perspective: You're Not Always Right … and Neither am I

    Tammy Jordan|Updated Oct 3, 2022

    We all have this notion that things are black and white, right or wrong, or ‘my way is better and your way can’t possibly be right.’ But, what if I told you just because your way works, doesn’t make it, or you, right or wrong?
