September 11, 2017

This is a semi serious open letter to Jeff Bezos. I am going to outline what I think the future will look like, and how it can be a better safer place for my daughter who just turned two this year. This weekend I was working on homework for my Logistics Certification course and we… Read More ›

Dog Donates $500 to charity. Kids Help Phone.

The Success Principles: Sleepless
