How Gabby S. Jefferson’s Role As A Mother Inspired Her To Become An App Developer And Entrepreneur

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / November 16, 2020 / Gabby S. Jefferson is a mother, wife, and entrepreneur. She graduated from Georgia State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and has spent her entire life in Atlanta, Georgia. Before starting her own business, Gabby was not unhappy but was not satisfied either. It was not until she had her daughter, Journee Anna Joy, that she decided to take control of her life. It was during this time that Gabby received the most judgment and was constantly put down by others.

“At this moment, I recognized my power. Life will drive you into being content with your surroundings if you let it. I changed the people who I was around, and now when I speak of my success, it’s not a dread, it’s an embrace, and I am happy to keep succeeding,” Gabby states.

Judy Shelton on the Fed? Still a Bad Idea

(Bloomberg Opinion) — President Donald Trump nominated Judy Shelton for the Federal Reserve Board of Governors in July 2019, and in the intervening year and a half the full Senate has wisely declined to act on her nomination — until now. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced last week that the Senate would take up her nomination as early as this week.

It would be better simply to let her nomination expire. But if Senate Republicans insist on a vote, they should beware: Approving Shelton could set off an arms race of monetary malfeasance.

Republican senators haven’t offered a substantive rationale for their change of heart. Many are undoubtedly looking to prevent President-elect Joe Biden from filling the two remaining seats on the Fed with people who would push the bank to incorporate progressive priorities into its decision making.

It’s not clear that Biden himself has any particular agenda for the

360training Is Helping Businesses Stay Open Safely During COVID-19

HASSA is a certification program that provides structured training on procedures, protocols, best practices, and contingency plans for consumers and businesses.
