Tatiana Nicoli worked hard on her education, right through Law School. Before long she was an important part of a sizable law firm in New York City. On nights when she worked late, she was provided with a limo and a driver for the trip home. The kind of perks that many envy.

How it went from there makes a great story…  Click on the Heading above and Listen for Yourself.
