Is it a good idea to get a coach or mentor?

Do keep up. I’m sorry it has been a couple of weeks since my last effervescent erudition. I thought it best to go into hiding for a little while – two reasons. Firstly, ever since I was papped topless whilst reading ’50 shades of” I’ve been stalked by a sweat of billionaire businessmen (not sure…

Life Is In Session

Why educate women – isn’t it a waste of resources?

When my wife went to university in London in the eighties one of her professors was of the opinion that the education was wasted on women, since they would leave university, get married and have children.
