Great Stories. Frustrating Delivery at Times.

Hannah is a very talented story teller, but the longer I listened the more I realised that she consistently talks up women, while putting down men. That kind of devision wore me down by about half way.

There is also a habitual fake ‘laugh’ that again works well at first, but becomes increasingly difficult to listen to.

If those things don’t bother you, then you’ll learn a lot from this course.

Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki are both concerned. Their concern is that the rich are getting richer, but America is getting poorer. The entitlement mentality is epidemic, creating people who expect their country, employer, or family to take care of them. And like the polar ice caps, the middle class is disappearing. America is becoming a two-class society, and soon you will be either rich or poor. Trump and Kiyosaki want you to be rich.

Great honest advice from two amazing educators. Only wish I had come across this sooner.
