    doubt in my mind that Lucky Miles should be included in the International Australian Film Festival of 2016.

With home grown films it is typical for writers to take the easy road and create two dimensional characters without any personality. This most certainly is not the case in Lucky Miles and is one of the…

Success, to a great extent, can be influenced by luck, but this is not to say that luck is an accident. Luck is predictable. With hard work, it can be controlled. By concentrating on several "luck factors"—key areas of your life that influence your future success—you can take the reigns of chance and feel yourself racing forward at a greater rate than you have…
