At last, something beautiful you can truly own. —Michael Ginsberg

I’m a busy bee. Breakfast meeting, work, power lunch, work, afternoon coffee, work, dinner at the latest-greatest, then more work.

Yet, there is more that I would like to do—and own.

(click on the bold-faced vocab words:))

stock gives the common woman a chance to own a piece of a company, without the daily grind of meetings and emails. Hallelujah!

Yes, I view stocks as a valuable investment. As a little black dress that I’ll wear for years to come.

A stock is not the playboy bunny costume I wore on Halloween Freshman year to quickly make new friends. Believe me, I looked fierce!  But on Nov. 1st  I woke up asking myself, “What was I thinking??”
