“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”

“If you want one year of prosperity, grow grain. If you want ten years of prosperity, grow trees. If you want one hundred years of prosperity, grow people.”

If you want your website to last a year, use a template. If you want your website to prosper then hire a web designer. They can adapt the website as new trends come and keep up with evolving technologies.


“Cheap things are not good, good things are not cheap.”


“If a thing’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well.”


These both ring incredibly true. There are websites out there that will only cost you ten dollars, but it will look like a ten dollar website. Websites are not something you should skimp out on. Invest for the best.
