My Boyfriend Was The I-24 Serial Killer, You Can Ask Me Anything
Ieva Urenceva I’m not one of those crazy women who write erotic love letters to Charlie Manson. I had no idea Tommy was anything other than a good guy when we met.

Obama Goes From White House to Wall Street in Less Than One Year

Obama Goes From White House to Wall Street in Less Than One Year
Hillary Clinton Northern Trust Corp. for about $400,000, a person familiar with his appearance said. Last week, he reminisced about the White House for rage about him, wincing over his 2009 line about fat cats as if the wounds were fresh. But his Justice Department prosecuted no major bankers for their roles in the financial crisis, and he resisted calls to break up the biggest banks, signing a regulatory overhaul that annoyed them with new rules but didn’t stop them

How Hustling Only Makes You Tired, Not Rich (9 Ways To Kill The Game)
Ali Kaukas The most damaging mentality I have ever had as a business woman and entrepreneur is “No Pain, No gain.” I wish that somebody would have told me, “Struggling is a choice” when I was building my business three years ago. Does building a business take time, have a process, take energy, have moments of scarcity followed by exhales of being supported?
