Secrets of Six-Figure Women

Book Review   “Success rarely comes to the passive or pessimistic” I don’t usually write personally here but there is something that I am so passionate about I thought it was time I did. I am passionate about women being all they can be and especially about them being financially independent. This is a real life book review. In early 2010 I came across a recommendation for a book on a website that I cannot recall, but I took a punt and ordered it from Amazon and well the rest of the story is outlined here.  “Secrets of Six Figure Women” by Barbara Stanny is straight forward,...

To Text or NOT to Text

Text messaging is great, I love it… most of the time; but I’ve noticed some disturbing trends.
