How I Broke Through the Glass Ceiling, Quit the Rat Race, and Put Myself on the Path to Financial Freedom (And How You Can, Too)

When I graduated from Mid-State Technical College in May 2003 with an Associate’s Degree in Marketing, I intended to apply my education to a career in music.

The WWE’s Roman Reigns: Living Proof That Being Hated Means You’ve Made It

Earlier this year, WWE Superstar Roman Reigns accomplished something that no “baby face” (pro wrestling lingo for a so-called “good guy”) has accomplished when he was named Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s Most Hated Wrestler of 2016. Additionally, the man is mercilessly booed in a way no “baby face” has ever been booed before (including John Cena, his predecessor in many ways and a man who himself is serenaded with “Cena sucks”...

Will Your Nudes Be the Next to Leak? (Why Taking Sexual Selfies is a VERY Bad Idea)

Many news outlets are calling it “The Fappening 2.0”: A brand new trove of “private” photographs, apparently stolen from a multitude of celebrities’ electronic devices, has popped up online and now the likes of the WWE’s Paige, Maria Kanellis-Bennett, and Summer Rae, as well as Hollywood starlets Emma Watson and Amanda Seyfried (to name a few), are scrambling to save their dignity (or what’s left of it).
