About Author
Olga ran away from home to join YourLifeChoices in June after five years as a freelance journalist. Before that she had worked for 20 years as a finance reporter on a metropolitan daily newspaper.

She is an avid reader of online content and dreams of one day retiring far from the Big Smoke.
