As baby boomers and seniors advance toward retirement, one certainty is that fiduciary responsibility rests more closely than ever with individuals.
Even as a teen, I found myself gravitating towards older, professional, rather bossy men -- and them to me. The thought of being a high-class hooker excited me, then horrified me the next moment. I was educated, I was a feminist, I was a social progressive: how, then, could I be turned on by the thought of serving some imposing man in a suit?
I achieved what many would consider impossible. If not impossible, most would say it was unlikely. I was a college dropout, yet I was able to earn hi...
What's interesting about this: I'm being completely objective. It's all just true. They actually are the two most beautiful and smart and talented young women in the whole world. I'm not kidding myself, like most people do about their children, grandchildren, nieces, whatever.
