“My father was a process engineer (chemical), and as I understand it he designed the process for manufacturing foods and chemicals.  He took a raw product and figured out the process to turn it into a finished good ready for market.  I think this is why my favorite part of what I do is finding a better way to build the processes required for a foreclosure practice, and fixing title and post-sale issues.  Once a client asked me:  Can you fix this? And my reply was:  Yes I can!”
