Posted on December 2, 2013 | 2 CommentsIf you have a million dollar income but you borrow money from someone who makes less than you do, you’re poor. I know it sounds offbeat and not quite right but think about it: Who borrows? Those who don’t have any money. And who doesn’t...
Posted on November 29, 2013 | 2 CommentsThese days in Québec, we hear a lot about Mylène Paquette, the first North American woman who has crossed the Atlantic Ocean in a paddle boat.
