    Can do - anything or everything


    Please help me out! I'm just about to finish writing an article focused on marketing.
    And I'm wondering - what's the correct way to put this
    "We can do everything"
    "we can do anything"

    Other options would be welcome too!

    If you do it all at once, "everything."
    If you do any one of many, many things, "anything."

    I hope you are not using "We can do everything/anything" in your promotional copy. This is simply not credible.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
