Sleep Like a Baby!

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 93-April 3 “The last refuge of the insomniac is a sense of superiority to the sleeping world.”—Leonard Cohen Insomnia used to upset me.

Updated insider information by Chellie Campbell, author of “The Wealthy Spirit: Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction” 92-April 2 “Every cloud has a silver lining but it is sometimes a little difficult to get to the mint.”—Don Marquis It seemed, no matter what I did, I got a bad cold every year.

You should have heard the arguments that went on each class about paying those fines!
