Woman Who Married Herself Says ‘Wedding’ Was About Self-Love

Some—well, many—called this act crazy. I wondered what motivated Eleby to go this untraditional route. Was this an act of desperation or self-love? And how much did she spend on this? (“I had enough money to pay for what I wanted,” she says.) I tracked her down at home, where she was unwinding after a day’s work. Over the course of the interview, we talked marriage—yes, she still wants a husband; media mayhem—“I am totally shocked how me loving myself is offending somebody else”; and mental health—no, she is not crazy (or bitter).

Small Business 101: What Is ‘Equity’ in a Company?

As you know, starting and operating a business takes money. And one of the many tough decisions business owners must make is whether that money should come from debt or from equity.

Most people are probably familiar with debt, whether from credit cards, car loans or home mortgages.
