Despite her success with AdSense, Wojcicki by 2006 was running a Google unit — Google Video — that was getting trounced by a small startup called YouTube, where millions of people shared their self-produced videos online.

Wojcicki’s solution to that problem shows her calm under fire. With just a day’s notice, she developed and presented to Google’s board the financial model justifying the $1.65 billion purchase.

No Christian prays for endless sin and punishment. If God permits it, it must be good and right. Why not pray for it? All Christians pray for the salvation of sinners, and yet Orthodox Christians profess to belief it will never be. The first essential of prayer is that it be in faith. The Universalist Church is the only one that believes in success.

*Look into the Universalist Church – it may be for you. Also watch The Greatest Showman for both Soul and Money motivation.

He spent time down in the mines himself before moving to the management side of the business. So, unlike some billionaire inheritors, Cline has experience down in the pits and knows the base functionality of his business. He’s lived it.

*You have both life and job experience. Why can’t you move to the management side of the business and run it the way you wish it was operating now.

These Grammy Award winners have written and performed such classic Top Ten Hits as “Heart of Rock & Roll”, “Stuck With You”, “I Want A New Drug”, “If This Is It”, “Hip To Be Square” “Do You Believe In Love” and “Workin’ For A Livin”. The group also wrote and performed “The Power of Love” and “Back in Time” for the hit film Back To The Future. “The Power of Love,” nominated for an Academy Award, went to #1 on Billboard’s singles chart, and was a smash hit worldwide.

*Listen to some classic, feel-good, 80s rock and roll – Huey Lewis and the News. Because it’s hip to be square.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
