Matters of money is a struggle for many people and can even become a phobia. To deal with the phobia, many people are turning to financial therapists for help.
Financial therapy is a form of therapy that untangles the relationships with money by treating the emotional root of money stress instead of the behaviour itself.
The game of chess helps build strategic thinking, a must-have skill in business.
It is a game of kings that goes back 4500 years under various names and rules, reflecting and teaching important business skills that have remained timeless.
Money is one of the tangible symbols of a nation's identity and history. Banknotes and coins evolve over time just as a nation evolves, and currency notes feature portraits of people who have made an impact on generations.

Attempts to promote new fashions and boost sales slowly increased as the pursuit of wealth extended beyond the very rich.
Hertz was the first national car rental company, followed by Avis.
In 1956, Hertz launched a slogan, "More people by far... use Hertz Rent-A-Car." Avis followed with its "We Try Harder" campaign in 1960, which evoked a response from Hertz, "For years Avis has been telling you Hertz is No. 1. Now we're going to tell you why."
