How to Trust Your Voice Within: A Conversation with Glennon Doyle & Laysha Ward

Glennon Doyle

“We’re always asking other people how we should live. And when you think about it, that’s totally hilarious because by definition, no one has ever lived the life we’re living.

No one has ever lived my life with my experiences, with my pain, with my loss, with my skills, with my effort. Every single life is an unrepeatable and unprecedented experiment, which makes it hilarious.

It’s literally like we’re asking other people for directions to places they’ve never been.”
—Glennon Doyle

Suze Orman Answers Your Real-Life Money Questions

Suze Orman

“Whole life insurance or variable life insurance or universal life insurance, or this new universal index life insurance that everybody is being sold right now are probably my top four hate investments that I have. I don’t like them. I’ve never liked them and I’m never going to like them, because do you think that there is an insurance company out there that’s going to pay you $100,000 death benefit if you haven’t paid them over the years at least $300,000 or $400,000 so that they can make money off of you? I don’t think so.”—Suze Orman
