An odd metaphor for hope. You think you're getting somewhere but you end up right where you started.

Carousels....it's witty. I had to think about it first. Carousels just go around and around, they don't go anywhere. that was cute.

Great Job Ree, keep up the philanthropy. I just hope you're training too!

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.

Are you insinuating that Miss Serena is only showing up for the swag?

That I wouldn't know . But I find the concept fascinating in many ways.


It's a topic actually worthy of a business school class; there are so many interesting facets to it. Really.
