3 Reasons Why Most People Will Never Earn More Money — And What You Can Do About It!

money This is a guest post by best-selling author and blogger Ramit Sethi.

For years, the most requested topic on my site, I Will Teach You To Be Rich, has been earning more money. Yet I intentionally stayed away because it’s almost always sleazy, attracting a ton of losers who simply want a silver bullet instead of actually working hard to earn money.

But if you’ve read my stuff, you know that I don’t spend much time on frugality, which I mostly consider a waste of time. Instead, I encourage people to focus on the Big Wins – automation, investing, negotiating, and understanding the psychology of money.

COVER STORY-Leading The Kennedy Dancers

Diane Dragone (still) has the Dancer in Her Soul

new-diane-in-sailor-suit-in-air

by Sally Deering 

 In the 1920s, when Shirley Temple tapped into America’s hearts with her bouncing ringlets, ruffled crinolines and shiny black tap shoes, mothers from Canarsie to Kenosha trundled their daughters off to their local dance school dreaming of their baby girl’s name in lights. Nowadays, child stars go by first names like Britney, but the local dance school still thrives as the only training ground for kids who dream of a dancing career.

 One local dance pioneer who has kept the stage lights burning in her neighborhood dance studio for the past 34 years is Diane Dragone, Artistic Director of The Kennedy Dancers, a professional dance company and dance school that stands in the wings of New York City.  Through her school and with her years as a teacher and choreographer, Dragone has trained and enriched the lives of thousands of inner-city kids – some who became professional dancers — and she has brought modern and classical dance performances to the multi-cultural and economically-diverse Hudson community.

 River View Observer “Site Seeing” Bringing you interesting posts from around the web”

devotionNew Jersey – March 22, 2010 – The combination of bar hopping and gym-going can often be a double-edged sword.

A fitness and nightlife enthusiast himself, Adelman felt the spirits market was lacking a product that could coincide with customers’ goals. So Devotion Vodka was born, the first premium vodka infused with Casein. Casein is a protein that prevents the breakdown of muscle and actually helps build it. The patented proprietary solution found only in Devotion Vodka is quickly transforming the cocktail in San Francisco (where it launched in November), while also defining a new generation of vodka aficionados who devote themselves fully to everything they do in life.
