It’s kinda weird to think that a book can help someone land a dream job, but the Timberland boot does exactly that for me, which I’ll explain here in a minute.
First a quick sidebar… have you heard this idea that lot of people who didn’t grow up with money end up trying to sort of make up for lost time when they finally do have money by being those things they couldn’t have.
