I received my name card today -- my very first name card! It's certainly a personal milestone for me. I remember when I was still in primary school, taking a stack of my dad's name cards and pretending they were mine; I'd go around and pretend I was a businessman, giving out these name cards...

Love what you do, and the money will follow. Or will it?
I recently read an article on how an author went around interviewing rich people in an attempt to find out their “secrets to success”.
