Truth in Advertising – Authentic Voice and Audience Expectations

Let me apologize up front – you can’t tap this picture for any links to recipes, ingredients, or anything else fancy in the food world. It’s just a graphic.

A Normal Day on a Champion Thoroughbred Farm

A Normal Day on a Champion Thoroughbred Farm
