How to Make More Money in 2017

Welcome to our BLOG InfluenceRevenue.com.

As Les Brown said “everyone knows that being rich doesn’t make you happy but everyone wants to find out for themselves.” Some people say that “money is the root of evil.” They actually are misquoting a well-known verse from the Bible that actually says “the love of money is the root of evil”.
