Define Success

I’m proud to say that I don’t owe anyone for my personal success in life. My parents financed my education and raised me with cultural exposure, and I’m grateful for that.

You must constantly adapt to change and the market aroundContinue reading “I’m sorry you became…Irrelevant”

I don’t want to hear someone else’s take on my life situations, either. I’d prefer to live in aContinue reading “If You Really Want The Answer, Be Prepared For The Answer”
