Most of the time they couldnâ€™t imagine doing anything else--except when they have â€˜one of those days.â€™ When you suffer from one of them, I highly recommend taking a couple of doses of Trey Reely before bed, and you wonâ€™t be calling anyone in the morning. His medicine will go down smoothly, and, at the dawn of a new day, you will realize that you are not alone. Trey has been there and done that and sees these shared experiences with a truly wicked sense of humor. At other times he is serious and philosophical with terrific suggestions that can help you as you labor in one of the most important jobs on the planet.â€ --David Newell, author and arranger_x000D_
