Ask the Handy Woman!

with Kheli Mason, The Handy Woman LLC

Procrastination seems to be one of those human characteristics that some of us have perfected more than others. I would count myself among the more “advanced” practitioners of the “art” (as Lora and Joseph can attest, as they wait for me to submit my column each month!).

Bob: That’s why we’re here.  This is an inverse sales pitch regarding mobile devices and plans. The key word of the column is “sucks”.
