Points of inflection
When i came back from UK after working many assignments i was not even called for an Interview from any application posted, Working as a Branch Manager (BM) could be considered as my inflection point.
Starting a busniness is easy, running a busniess needs confident, sustaining & shining in a business needs your soul & mind.

Most Important Lessons
