Let's take a look at the Republican lineup to face Hillary Clinton and examine in a "nutshell" (excuse the expression) their respective appeal and chance of making the final cut.
Ebola is coming and we're all going to die!!!! Actually, not really. But if you watch CNN, you'll definitely start to think so.
Do you think you knew all the basic human resources questions hiring companies like to ask? What are your strengths? Weaknesses? HR 101, I call them. Familiar?
The property market in Brazil appears to be heating up and, mark my words, I plan to dive in with the zeal of seasoned real estate pros like Donald Trump or that Barbara woman from Shark Tank.
Think about when you've fallen in love in your life or the first time you held your newborn child in your arms. The colors looked brighter, the sounds were clearer, and it felt like your heart was going to burst with love and joy.
