Excellent message, Paul... but I must admit that I prefer my scrambled eggs for breakfast. Maybe the problems could be a side dish. :)

We usually won't be surprised by things that we expect to happen and it's always good to be as prepared as possible for what life might throw at us, haha.

Good morning Paul. Problems are opportunities cleverly disguised. Many will pout but few will take advantage. Enjoy your day.

Will there be problems? Most likely yes, but get rid of them early on and move onto a good steak dinner!

I was just sitting here wondering. . .How many calories are there in a problem!  I know when I have them, I acquire for belly fat.🙃

Hi Paul, 

I am with Nina Hollander, Broker on this one!  I prefer scrambled eggs and coffee before I tackle a problem. I work better on a full stomach! LOL
