Traditional Corporations Feel Threatened By The Rise Of Independent Contractors, And They Should

If you've read my blog before, you already know that I used to be in corporate America and I broke free from those chains last year to pursue my lifelong dream of self-employment.

Ruth’s Chris Steak House: The Proletariat Infiltrating The Bourgeois Of Cary

I love steak, especially ribeye. It's one of my favorite things in the world. I'm not the type of person who typically goes to steakhouses, however, and I have a good reason for that. I'm a pretty thrifty girl because I've always been far from wealthy, and I also love to cook (as you already… Continue reading Ruth’s Chris Steak House: The Proletariat Infiltrating The Bourgeois Of Cary

It's a common misconception that married people who suddenly transition into family life and have less… Continue reading Yes, Married People Are Less Available For Socializing And That’s OK
