James Altucher is someone whom I follow. I like his brain. 

The way he writes is like a roller-coaster - it's uplifting and soaring and then it can crash. If you follow him long enough – it’s kind of like the way, he describes his life.

International Women's Day

General by Liz Eustace

#IWD2017 -- I'm never a big fan of the word "should" in life. It feels forced and in a weird way, judgemental. Why do I get to tell you what you 'should' do?
