What Makes the World Go Around: Quotes on the Art of Earning Money

Money makes the world go around
The world go around,
The world go around.
Money makes the world go around, it makes the world go ‘round.
A mark, a yen, a buck, or a pound,
A buck or a pound,
A buck or a pound.
Is all that makes the world go around,
That clinking clanking sound,
Can make the world go ‘round.”

That song rings in my ears as we publish the April 2015 issue of Be Inkandescent magazine. For inspiration on the art of earning money, the gift of knowing what to do with it, and the business of being successful in business — scroll down for a month’s worth of wisdom.
