I've been an avid Apple user ever since I starting writing my college papers on the Macintosh Classic in the early 90s.

As the FBI investigates the private email account Hillary Clinton used while serving as Secretary of State, more questions are being raised about just how safe and secure her private email server really was. Of course, the biggest question of all is, could it have been hacked?
I recently spoke with multiple former PMs who needed to take year-long sabbaticals to get themselves back on track. They were tired. Their anxiety was running high. They could not seem to get any of their goals accomplished. They were in a funk. Sound familiar?
