Cinnamon: The Niceness Project, Now With Vegan Menu Choices!

I found a random rubber stamp in the garage that says “cinnamon.” Where did this come from and why do I have this? Today I walked it down to my local vegan restaurant, which just happens to be called CINNAMON, and gave the stamp to the very startled counter girl.

Thomas J. Stanley, the best selling author of The Millionaire Next Door was interviewed about what common traits decamillionaires (for those of you who didn’t grow up in the seventies and experience the metric system that means people with at least ten million dollars) have. The number one trait of really rich, self-made people? Integrity. […]
