  • In the early 1900's Henry Ford was party to creating one of the first automated production lines. He was also known for saying, 'You can have your car in any color you wish, as long as it is black'. This resulted in motor car production being less expensive and making cars available to the masses.

  • What a great way of thinking about the purpose of your business.
    Make a ding in the world means to me, that I want to make an impact on peoples lives.
