Don’t let age be an excuse 

I can’t recall the number of times someone would tell me, “I’m too old for this.” I’m too old to run. I’m too old to travel. I’m too old to learn a new language. I’m too old to start a new business. People seem to think that once they... Read More | Share it now!

Why you should never stick with one speciality

I used to believe that if you spend most of your time and energy doing one thing, you’d become really good at it within a year. Above average in 5 years. A master after 10. So what did I decide on, you ask? COOKING. *Freshmen year in college* Hey... Read More | Share it now!
