    Oh no I thought you were joking again babe. But you are very talented photo shop and funny. So maybe something in marketing and print work in a magazine etc.

    One of my best classes in grad school was to interview a CEO of large firm/company. That was the best and most rewarding class I ever had in all my years of school because I got so much info and I was so motivated and focus. I refuse to make anybody rich again with them pimping any of my ideas and my resources.

    But these are some good books that I suggest looking into and to keep you motivated and ready to throw in the towel. I have a couple I always have to go back to my libary and underline and highlight things so they stay with me.

    1. INTO THIN AIR, by Jon Krakauer
    2. WHY SHOULD WHITE GUYS HAVE ALL THE FUN?, by Blair S. Walker and Reginald F. Lewis. Lewis, the first African- American billionaire.
    3. THE TIPPING POINT, by Malcolm Gladwell

    Yeah it was sad but those are the type of days you'll also sometimes have. Dutty long list just made that book pop to me. I think its good to observe someone else because they can motivate you to keep on trying because you might not have it as bad as them. Then you can sometimes learn from their mistakes. I have certain biz friends I spend an entire day hanging out with them at their office and doing lunch. Sometimes I'm like wow when I see how much money they flush away with one bad move/decision. I sometimes feel the need to have eyes behind my head and I have to really trust who works with me and what I allow them to do for me.

    what business did you have? In retrospect, is there anything that you could have done differently to make things better or was it just a bad idea? How long did you stick it out for?
