The posts which do best on this site are those in which I’m most honest. Honestly! So I’m going to be honest with you today: I’m kinda lazy.  It’s not uncommon for me to seek out the path of least resistance; to find an easier way.  That’s not a great quality to have if you’re […] The post The Path of Least Resistance appeared first on Get Rich Quick'ish. ...

Good Sunday morning everyone and a very happy Mother’s Day to all your moms and mom-to-be!  I’m staying away from the obvious theme this week and instead am going in a different direction.
