Golda’s Recent Updates

Choose Yourself Be Happy, Make Millions, Live The Dream by James Altucher
"Altucher has an easy, conversational, and candid style, and this book is a quick read. He tells how he made millions, lost it all, was nearly suicidal in a failure downspiral, and how he slowly climbed out of it. Loaded with personal idiosyncrasie..." Read more of this review »
Unbought And Unbossed by Shirley Chisholm
"If you are looking for the story of the struggle of women in politics, look no further. Shirley Chisholm lived intersectionality decades before it was a thing."

“I think fitting in is highly overrated. I’d rather just fit out... Fitting out means being who you are, even when people insist that you have to change. Fitting out means taking up space, not apologizing for yourself, and not agreeing with those who seek to label you with stereotypes.”
Golda Poretsky

“Beauty shouldn’t be about changing yourself to achieve an ideal or be more socially acceptable. Real beauty, the interesting, truly pleasing kind, is about honoring the beauty within you and without you. It’s about knowing that someone else’s definition of pretty has no hold over you.”
Golda Poretsky

“You are not broken. You are not a problem to be solved. Solving your “problem”, whatever you perceive your problem or problems to be, is not the key to happiness.”
Golda Poretsky

“Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day after tomorrow just as well.”
Mark Twain

“Humor is reason gone mad.”
Groucho Marx

“I've had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn't it.”
Groucho Marx

“Those are my principles, and if you don't like them...well I have others.”
Groucho Marx

“I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.”
Mae West
