This Independent Woman Doesn’t Care About A Man’s Money : The Saturday Weekend Review #195

IF YOU WANT TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD YOU FIRST HAVE TO FIND YOUR PATH UNASSISTED BY OTHERS WEALTH.   My wife and I were having this conversation the other day about someone we know who is beautiful, smart, successful and single.
