Business Tips

Eight out of ten businesses fail within their first 18 months. Starting a business is no joke- it requires continual hard work, cash flow, and a dedicated team. It will demand much of you, and there may be stretches of time with no return on your investment. If you want to be among the few […]

Successful People

We live in a world that idealizes the accomplishments of the very young. Look at this 14-year-old founder! Look at this mogul who established an empire while in college! We love stories of people doing larger than life things before age 25. It can leave you feeling like a failure if you’re 30 or older […]
