Personally Authoring a Book to Assist Veteran Entrepreneurship

I’m of the opinion that everyone has at least one book in them and after speaking with some of my friends who are authors, apparently they agree with this philosophy, so now it’s my turn to find a book in me.  This is actually something I’ve thought about for quite

The Sequester Takes Effect

Balancing those “Just a Minute” Business Snafu’s
