    The Best Damn Driver

    The Best Damn Driver

    Across the monitor in delayed succession the new deliveries specifics sputter out: Address, order, estimated time of arrival, and or if there are any special sides. I’m first in line to take the next batch, three or four I lug in a worn-out bag and race around town, mapping out the quickest routes to get where the customers wait. I never want to be more than two minutes with one customer. How you doing tonight? You see the game? You need any cheese and peppers, any plates and napkins? That is my small talk. That is why my manager pats me on the back and says, “The best, the best damn driver I ever had.”

    The Myths and Truth about Direct Selling Business

    The Myths and Truth about Direct Selling Business

    No ‘work-at-home’ scheme is demonized and misunderstood than network marketing and direct selling. At its best, direct selling and network marketing are seen as ‘unimportant’ mommy-business or something that Uncle Bob does only to find his good luck. And at its worst, it is perceived as scam artists and being ‘full of greedy snakes oil salesperson’. Simultaneously, others tout direct selling business as a viable method to jump-start a home-based part-time business.

    Lucid Dreams

    Lucid Dreams

    As a person who has had a plethora of these dreams, I've always wondered, are they real? Did I imagine this? Was I just overstimulated during the day? Well, needless to say, I got my answers. I've had Lucid dreams since I was a child. Lucid dreams are those that are so vivid in imagery, they seem real. Like you wake up wondering where you are because you swear you were just somewhere else. They tend to occur during REM sleep, which means Rapid Eye Movement. This is the second stage of sleep, the deep sleep. If you've ever watched someone sleep and see their eyes moving like crazy, they're in REM and probably having a wild dream. REM sleep happens like 2-ish hours after you fall asleep. So, one day as a child, I had a dream that me, my mom, and siblings went to a store and saw someone we knew but had not seen in a long time, a very vivid dream like I was there in person. I saw the entire scene play out as if it were real. The next day, we went to that same store, and everything that happened in my dream happened in that store. Now, as a child, that was very scary because how can that be real? I thought dreams were just that, dreams. As I grew older, the situations seemed to happen more and more. So in 2016, I decided to start keeping a dream journal because they were getting way more potent. In this present life in 2020, I am a very spiritual person. I tend to skew toward the fact that my dreams were actually real or have real messages behind them. So I just documented them back then and didn't really pay attention, as things in my real waking life were more important. 2020, I finally had time to actually sit down and go over my journals from 2016-present. The dreams that I recorded blew my mind. All of these dreams were lucid, and all of them were either warnings or precognitive. It scared me because I tied each dream to an actual event in my waking life that happened to me, my family, or close friends. So do I believe lucid dreams are real? Yes! In my opinion, those are the dreams that you need to pay special attention to. They have meaning so record them. I used to write them down, but voice notes are way faster lol. You'd be surprised at what they really mean in waking life...Like one of my most recent dreams...I was warned about an extraterrestrial visit I would soon receive...Stay tuned for my next article where I'll tell you all about it.

    Bezos, Gates, Zuckerberg. Behind every "self-made" millionaire is a father with money

    Bezos, Gates, Zuckerberg. Behind every "self-made" millionaire is a father with money

    It is commonplace in business mythology. The anonymous entrepreneur who only with a huge effort achieves that his idea, so original and disruptive, becomes a success story. The story is usually starched with all kinds of barriers, obstacles, often financial, that our hero has had to overcome to reach the top. The last lesson is always the same: if you want, you can. If he could, overcoming so many difficulties, perhaps you too. At least give it a try.

    The Ego Death

    The Ego Death

    “I simply cannot risk that,” the CEO said, looking unconfidently at the barely drank glass of whiskey in his hand, shaking slightly from resting on his nervously fidgeting leg. Anthony was reading his behavior. His words told of his confidence in his own public relations team, but his behavior told of his fear. His fear that everything Anthony was warning him of was true. Anthony looked him in the eyes and smiled calmly at him while finishing his last sip of whiskey, then responded.

    Is the Gender Pay Gap Real?

    I have heard a lot about the gender pay gap for a while; women allegedly make 70 cents to a man's $1. I have heard this ploy for years and have always wondered where people get this crap.
