Martha Stewart Has Been There, She Knows

Martha Stewart is an original, and got her start when things looked very grim indeed.  She had to jump from job to job before she landed on her passion, in which she found joy.  Now she scolds the young:
“But who are millennials? Now we are finding out that they are living with their parents.
“They don’t have the initiative to go out and find a little apartment and grow a tomato plant on the terrace.
“I understand the plight of younger people. The economic circumstances out there are very grim. But you have to work for it. You have to strive for it. You have to go after it.”
Martha’s career began when she landed a job as a model. She then went on to become a stockbroker before launching a cookbook which turned her into a lifestyle expert and TV personality.
Stewart has written a book a year, and I read none, until she wrote one, on business start-up, in prison.  Now that I had to read.  It was surprisingly good, very good in fact.  One of the best I have ever read.  For that reason I have put a permanent link to the book over on the left side of this blog, with the other books I think people should read.  Check it out.
