If you are lazy but clever, or hard working but stupid; you can still achieve moderate success, but you will never build an astronomical dynasty.

I'm a 35 yr. old unemployed mother/wife at the moment myself, trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my life....Lots of knowledge in different fields, but no expertise in any 1 thing. I have such diversified interests. I mean diversified (Tractor Trailer Driver to Legal Assistant, Web Design and Auto/Motorcycle Mechanic diversity)
I'm just trying to give you different points of view here and things to think about.
