Mixing business and pleasure with Shakira

Those of you who follow me on Twitter on Facebook will know that when I am working in the evening I will often claim to be 'sponsored by' what I'm eating, drinking or listening to. This usually involves sweets/chocolate, beer of some sort - Estrella Damm hopefully - and more often than not - Shakira.

I was often queried about this. "You do know she's pregnant don't you?" "She's married you know? To a footballer!"

I didn't know she was pregnant (she now has a young son) or married and it really doesn't matter. I'm not in love with Shakira, but her music is damned good to work and because she has a wide range of influences it doesn't get boring.

So when I got my new job as Editor in Chief for Riddle.com and needed to write funny personality tests that actually mean something this was one of the first I wrote. No research needed!

  1. With the recent trend in company layoffs, more people are becoming interested in starting their own business, and it's easy to see why. Although starting your own company means that you have to generate your own business, it also means that you'll never be called into a boss's office and told that you have to find another way to pay your mortgage. When starting their own company, most people choose an area of business that they have experience in. CutTheWood
