There is no need waste your efforts with strategies that have no hope of returning your investment, much less yielding a profit.

“To create energy for making positive changes, societies must consider that entrepreneurship is not the heroic act of a few individuals, but the accomplishments of many people who pursue their ambitions in a supportive, cultural and institutional environment.”
Professor Slavica Singer, J.J. Strossmayer University in Croatia.
