# 1 – PASSION: Choose a career you have passion for and for the rest of your life you will never have to work for a day.
# 2 – LACK OF FUND: Do not sit and wait for raised capital before you unleash your skills in the business you wish to develop. Start with the little you have and polish your skill.
# 3 – ACTION: When you store all the ideas in your head, you will die with it. Therefore, it’s not all about thinking but DOING IT!
# 4 – TEAM WORK: Team work pays quicker in knowledge, achievement and good business foundation. Team work takes you far, but when you build your vision alone, a snail will go faster.
