The Best Advice We’ve Ever Received

We get told advice every day, whether we ask for it or not.  From friends, family, co-workers and even strangers. Sometimes, though, this advice sticks with us and we carry it with us every day. We asked the ladies here at KMC what that advice was for them and this is what they had to
