Open Windows Abound!

“If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.”
- Thomas A. Edison

With this above-mentioned quote, it is no wonder that Thomas Edison invented more than a thousand things including the electric light and various electrical gadgets! He really believed that man was endowed with the talent to create and to invent.
I sort of see myself in the same plane now; I’m the process of creating something that has a potentially high value-add. It is a solution to three critical questions my family is currently faced with: 1) how to have continuous income generation, 2) how to synergize family relationships while being economically productive (i.e. earning while teaching your kids the craft), and 3) how to apply life leadership and management skills in our own enterprise. Bottom line, it is having a stable, challenging and rewarding family business that we own and can pass on to our children. There is a promising opportunity that awaits us: working in the future set-up will not mean leaving the children at home. In this seamless set-up, we can impart our work ethic to our children and teach them critical skills as well.
