Pining for the days of millionaires and moonshine

Have you noticed that our lifestyle is changing at a fast pace? Today's millionaires are nowhere near as well-off as yesterday's were.

Today's millionaires are living in upscale-built homes, have a mortgage and drive themselves to work every day.

What can be learned about business at a lemonade stand

Reading an article some time back I came across a philosophy of life. I don't remember who wrote the article and I am sure I can't remember all the parts of it, but one portion surfaced last Saturday. It was, "Whenever there is a lemonade stand, stop and buy some from the proprietor. That child is going to be running his or her own business some day and they need to be encouraged."
