Self-Publishing: Lets Women Break Book Industry’s Glass Ceiling

Virginia Woolf, a groundbreaking author and her own publisher, may have put it best when she declared that “a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.” In so few words, she summarized the host of challenges facing female writers. 

Many of the issues related to publishing in the days of Virginia Woolf persist. She herself was a self-published author.

We may have made some great strides since then in voting and political rights but, as the wage gap shows, we still have some way to go in publishing.

How Social Media Gets Your Business Results

Is social media worth it? It’s an important question for a business owner to ask, because many businesses don’t even measure social media’s return on investment. They don’t measure social media at all.

It’s behind the walls of the Ivy League University where Officer Mike Meskill started his career in law enforcement in 2012.

To Color Or Not To Color? That is the Question.

Obviously, there is more to it than a simple yes or no answer. In today’s age, there are so many choices and so much information out there. As a society, the value of a woman is placed in her beauty. Beauty is often defined as looking young and vibrant.  We as a population are expected to keep up our appearances or fear destruction of life as we know it. This could affect our marriages, our career, and our relationship with our children. This is a whole other story all together the social norms of what is beautiful. Putting that aside,  let’s focus on the skinny of hair philosophy.
