Is it just me, or does it seem like we’ve entered the golden age of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) solutions?
When we face a problem or challenge, or have to deal with something even vaguely unfamiliar, what’s the first step that we usually take? Do we call up an expert and ask them for help, shelling out an uncertain amount of money in the process?
No, chances are if you’re like me, and your garbage disposal breaks, you’ll immediately turn to Google to find out the source of the issue, followed by YouTube to see how to fix it. If, and only if, this proves to be more time or effort than you’re willing to devote to the problem, will you seek out a local plumber (with satisfactory reviews on Yelp).
