Start at the bottom.

Start at the bottom.

You might not see any benefits during the first few years. It’s a hard concept to grasp. Because you also don’t want to waste your time.

  • No, you still have to be smart. If you don’t see any results, be hard on yourself. But always be willing to start at the bottom.
  • Forget about your ego.
  • No one is good enough to do certain things. And at some level, we’re all students.

Just look at all the kids with rich parents who give them everything. Those kids often don’t understand the value of hard work and how hard it is to make a living. There’s no honor in getting a free pass.

    I’ve never met a successful person who did not build a career on their strengths. It simply does not exist.

    Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

    Ashley Anthony

    This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

    Jamyson Haug

    Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

    Laetitia Berton

    I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

    Giovanna Scalzone

    Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
