""ultra-visual" was a keyword on a resume today.  Can someone tell me what that means?  Is it like really really visual?  Would I have to explain everything in picture form?    "

"That's a good lesson, Brian. It sounds like that HS friend did you a huge favor by calling attention to the lack of a personal touch and why they were turned off by your message. It reminds me of the concept of complaining when you get bad…"
