Personal Quote:

Fear is unreasonable and sometimes it creeps up on you. I'm not a rich woman, I would say I'm comfortable, but I've heard rich people say they remain conscious of money because of their upbringing so maybe it stays with you forever. I don't think money makes anyone happy, but it gives you a freedom of choice. I have finally realised that I don't have to tour unless I want to. See more »
