Then the inevitable happen. People lost their home, unemployment spiraled out of control, monies was lost in the stock market. Wall Street didn’t have a prayer.

Still people need to familiarize themselves with every investment. One must stay on top of accurate information, to make the best decision. In the mean time people like Helane Morrison will be keeping a watchful eye.

  1. Truly to be fair and honest, there are real barriers in the world of corporate career that one can see but determination beats all. Either or hall capital will be a good place to find all the projects that can help many women. I think more should be done to put more women in business and engineering as well.
