Take this job …… and love it

  1. How do you monetize wanting to encourage people? How do you mix creativity and encouraging others?
  2. How can I be paid for my rhymes?
  3. Because I am happy, my situation is a little different from others who write to you with hopelessness and despair. I actually like my job.
  4. How can we use an acre of land to bring in some cash, other than the obvious option of growing fruit & vegetables.
