Linda Honey, Honey Listen – A Franchise
Just a month, and Linda has converted the whole name, fame and recognition into business. The lady now has started selling T-shirts with quotes “Linda Honey, Honey Listen” and the fund she gets will be collected for Mateo’s college fund. Without doubt, Linda sees Mateo studying Law from Harvard Law School and arguing/debating for the needy in the future.
