Hello everyone again. I just noticed something very interesting. Many doctors devote many years of their life to obtaining specialties, so by the time they finish their specialties they will be well into their thirties or close to thirty. There are many people who are making millions by the time they are in their late twenties, yet it takes doctors close to thirty years old to finally make that whopping (how ironic) six figure salary every single year.

Hello all:   This is Frank. Why do people like to buy so many materials? People like to spend their hard-earned cash on frivolous material, that only seems to go out-of-date in a few years, let alone a few months. Why do you choose to obtain so many items that will only satisfy your wants for only a few moments? There are those of your friends that always seem happy in their Instagram posts, Twitter posts, Facebook posts, and all their social media posts. Do they not seem so happy, because they are always being professionally happy (i.e. Life seems to be so swell for them)? They cannot look depressed online, (more…)
