A Worthy Read

Full of life's hard lessons. Thank you for writing this, AnnMarie! +CHEESESLAVE 
They always say the first million is the hardest. And you know what? They’re right. I learned a lot making the first million. But I learned even more losing it. In this post, I’m going to tell you why. Now,
