Book Review

"The Wealth Cure" by Hill Harper

Hill Harper had an awakening that presented itself in the form of a life-threatening physical condition, and for Hill, this was a life-changing moment. I have read stories and heard the stories of others who have gone through a health issue and realized that the only thing that matters is your internal happiness and the joy you create for yourself.
