The last time I flew in an airplane, I wrote my heart out for two hours straight. But when I failed to realize that my phone coverage didn’t extend beyond my home country, consequently, all was lost. What I did realize, however, is that despite my loss, the benefit from the process still remained. … More What if You Fly?
Dear Mr. Trump, First of all, congrats on an astounding win last night. You’ve just been hired for a new job, and man it’s a BIG one. I can’t imagine what it was like to wake up in your shoes today.
