    Are You a Quality Product?

    By May 23,2022

    One of the most amazing things about living where I do, in Malibu, California, is observing how well many people treat themselves and how seriously they take themselves. I know numerous people who have the following: • Personal trainers (to motivate them to workout hard) • Nutritionists (to recommend diets) • Chefs (to cook the food) • Stylists (to take them shopping for clothes) • Anti-aging doctors (to prescribe various hormones) • Psychologists (to talk through problems with) • Psychiatrists (to prescribe various mood altering...
