The life of an entrepreneur is not a particularly easy one. Doors open one day and for weeks or months new ones can remain shut.

The future is approaching…and fast. Writing a letter to the universe won’t change time, but it may help you focus!

A stereotypical blog post on the future is bound to include: “although flying cars are still just a promise” or “soon, the majority of surfaces around us will be embedded with LCD technology,”
