Never be afraid to negotiate and don't tolerate bad behavior.

In your next life, what would your career be?

What is something that everyone should own, no matter how much it costs?

Beautiful frames for your favorite pictures. Get those photos out of your phone!

What’s something that you thought you knew but later found out you were wrong about?
