We don’t get a new car every time ours has an issue. That’s not a practical solution. No, no, no. We fix them. Some repairs we can do ourselves, though every now and then, we need a Professional. Sometimes that Professional takes a look at it and says, “You’re going to need a new car.”




We’re a Bad Influence because we INCITE change through inclusion, thought and creativity. We imagine a world where people can think critically, express themselves, and thumb their nose at the status quo, together.
