{Remaining} 2017 Reading List

According to Dave Ramsey, the average millionaire reads one non-fiction book every month. Besides that fact, I’ve decided that I need to soak up some knowledge given my new work situation.

When I was a student at The Florida State University, I applied for a scholarship and had to meet with the committee as part of the application process.
