Maximizing My Future By Eliminating My $220,000 Student Loan Debt

by Ebony Horton

Ebony Horton had no idea when she graduated with her MBA in 2013 how much debt she would be in. “I was working in an entry-level position in Washington, D.C, and I was barely making enough to survive–let alone pay back my student loans.” She began deferring her loans, and continued to defer until she couldn’t defer any longer. After reading several finance books she decided paying off her loans would be the best option. Unfortunately her finances weren’t in agreement. So in 2013 she decided to move back home and work for her mother.

Now fast forward to 2017…..She is a debt free 31-year old that recently paid off $220,000 in private and public student loans.

She shares her story because she wants other people to feel empowered. She wants people to know that being free of student loan debt is a reality. And with sacrifice, determination, and creativity, you can definitely do the same.



The Meanest Man In America The Life and Crimes of Serial Killer Donald Henry Gaskins: A True Story of Rape, Cannibalism, and Murder

by Charlie Lark

It is plausible that Donald Henry Gaskins was born a psychopath, it may also be said that his life experiences helped turn him into a sociopath.
The “meanest man in America” earned the title of the most prolific serial killer in South Carolina’s history. Although it was never confirmed, Gaskins claimed to have murdered over 100 people, with some reports as high as 181. He tortured, killed, and occasionally ate his victims until his final arrest in 1975 (yes, he had been arrested numerous times). Gaskins was ultimately executed, not for his many, many murders outside prison, but for killing a prisoner on death row while Gaskins himself was serving consecutive life sentences.
In his autobiography, Final Truth: The Autobiography of a Serial Killer, which currently has less than 25 copies available on Amazon and none for less than $100, Gaskins said, “I have walked the same path as God, by taking lives and making others afraid, I became God’s equal.”
Whether you believe his side of the story or not, the tale of Donald Henry Gaskins is one that should not be forgotten.

Anthony Joshua: How the bad boy made good

by James Donaghy

On the night of 29th April 2017, Anthony Joshua became a British sporting immortal. He had just knocked out Ukrainian Hall of Famer Wladimir Klitschko in the 11th round of one of the best heavyweight title contests anyone could remember. His triumph took place in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley Stadium. It was his 19th professional fight, 19th consecutive knockout, most of them within two rounds. He was the most exciting of a new generation of big men eager to breathe life into the flatlining heavyweight division after its decade-long coma under the flatulent safety first tyranny of the Klitschko brothers. Just a few years earlier though he faced a jail sentence for possession of drugs with intent to supply. It had been a dizzying rise.

Boxing journalist James Donaghy breaks down Joshua’s career fight by fight, traces his professional development and gives insight into how the Watford tearaway transformed himself from gully street kid to boxing royalty with testimony from friends, foes and opponents.

Blackbird

by Marea Hannah Whitley

Catholic school primary education is a roller coaster ride for Marea Morgan, from her first morning in Kindergarten with kind-hearted Miss Blaine, to her final conflict in Sixth Class with the violent and fierce Mother Mary Macarius. Marea finds her position in the system, but her righteous anger and impulsive nature constantly places her in harum-scarum predicaments that lead to painful consequences. She enjoys, she endures, is rewarded, is cruelly punished. She has her revenge.
Life at home is almost as chaotic. One of five children, Marea is seen as normal in a household that is anything but average. Mrs Morgan dismisses her daughter’s facial tics and impulsive disobedience as bad habits she’ll eventually grow out of. Mr Morgan deals with Marea’s waywardness the same way he deals with life – head on.
Based on fact, this riotous account of an eventful childhood is written with warmth and humour. It provides satirical, yet truthful, insight into the often violent system of Catholic education in Australia in the 1960s.
