That’s it. Its that simple. Of course its not that simple. The theme of the stories should be centered around things people did in the name of earning money. Yes the simple concept of everyday life where we go to office, run around our bosses some of us write, some of us blog, some of us innovate and so on. Yes that should be the central theme. Stories of people earning money and how.

faith/ believing in your dream
