You are priceless. Do not devalue yourself.

You are priceless. Do not devalue yourself by being an option in lieu of a priority. Your self-worth should be the opposite of second best, finishing last and accepting whatever scraps are provided to you.

My passion fuels me to do whatever it positively takes to provide my family and loved ones with generational wealth while I Continue reading →

‘Having children makes you no more a parent than having a piano makes you a pianist’

One of my favorite quotes is “Having children makes you no more a parent than having a piano makes you a pianist.” ~ Michael Levine Many people today feel having children automatically makes them good parents.

It pains me to see people neglect their children ESPECIALLY when there are so many in this world that Continue reading →
