“To be honest, people have this misconception that when you are successful and rich, men avoid you. That’s not my experience. A lot of men come after you when you are successful and rich. Strong men come for you. For me, I was too picky. I like successful people too, I want somebody that can inspire me.
So I’m naturally attracted to successful men. So my experience has been a lot of men come after you for different reasons. Some are sincere, some just want your money, some want to use you to crown chase, some see you as an asset, some see you as a bank, and some truly like you. That’s been my experience.”

“What I’ve always preached is, you can make money on your own. You don’t have to sleep with men for money.”
